A direct selling energy and life services company, Stream Energy was founded in 2005. They provide their customers with everything from reduced cost clean energy to international wireless phone plans, and even virtual doctors! They bring their services to customers in Texas, Georgia, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and even the nations capital, Washington D.C.
All of Stream Energy’s employees are very involved with their communities. In Dallas, Texas where the company is headquartered, they help track and supply much needed support to the homeless population of the city. They do this with the help of local charities such as Hope, the Red Cross, and Habitat for Humanity. All of these wonderful philanthropic acts are under the guidance of Stream Cares, Stream Energy’s community outreach company arm. When Hurricane Harvey ripped through Texas in horrifying fashion, Stream Cares took it upon themselves to help fund the recovery efforts. They were one of the first companies to step forward with relief efforts.
In a recent article about Stream Cares, which is featured on patch.com, the company is said to have “corporate philanthropy in their DNA”. Stream Energy formed Stream Cares over 12 years ago, only a few years after the company was founded. Being a major part of the communities wherein they operate is an essential part of the company’s brand. The associates of Stream Energy, through their direct sales, form long-lasting, loyal relationships with their customers.
Another of their more recent philanthropic endeavors, which is also featured on patch.com, involved a local charity, Hope. Together, Hope and Stream Energy helped over 1,000 homeless children in northern Texas by covering the entrance fee and buying food for all of them at the annual Splash for Hope.
Companies like Stream are helping to make a big difference in their communities and change the public view of large corporations. Hopefully in the future, more businesses will follow this model to help improve our way of life for all Americans!!!
