Stream Energy is one of the newer utility companies, having only been around since its inception in 2005, but that hasn’t stopped this company from making big waves in community assistance and outstanding acts of philanthropy. Stream Energy generates over $8 billion dollars in revenue between its energy, home and protective services, and wireless offerings.
The company prides itself on being an ethical employment opportunity with a business model that provides abundant options for those wanting to not just have a job, but work toward building a better life. Their Women of Power organization creates a special connection for female associates to grow, share, connect, and empower one another.
Stream recently made its charity foundation “Stream Cares” official after years of dedicated service. Corporate philanthropy is a theme that runs deeply with Stream Energy and it can be seen in the assistance they have given the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, as well as local non-profits such as Hope Supply Company which focuses on the needs of homeless children. Stream partnered with this company to give 1,000 families admission to a local water park and meals for the day. For many, this was an experience far from anything they had been a part of before.
It is easily seen in the way Stream leaped to the task of assisting those affected by Hurricane Harvey in the Texas area. Plummeting over 56 inches of rain on areas such as Houston, Hurricane Harvey was catastrophic in its destruction. The damage was astronomically costly with families losing loved ones, their homes and possessions, their vehicles, and their pets and livestock.
Stream Energy is not new to lending a helping hand. They diversified their altruistic efforts and began helping in the North Texas area right away following the series of tornadoes that wreaked havoc on the area the day after Christmas in 2016. They worked alongside the Salvation Army matching contributions and seeking donors.
The American Veteran is near and dear to the hearts of the Stream Energy family, as well. In a joint effort with Operation Once In A Lifetime, Stream Energy facilitated transportation for veterans and their families to a phenomenal Texas restaurant where they feasted upon ribs, burgers, steaks, and more. The following day was a ‘Girls Only’ event where 10 daughters of military members were selected to travel to the American Doll store where they chose their personalized doll and followed the experience with dining in the American Doll Café, all expenses paid by Stream.
