Hurricane Harvey, which was rated a category four cyclone as confirmed by the National Hurricane Centre, hit San José Island in Texas on 25th August 2017. The damage caused by the hurricane was projected to be 125 billion US dollars. It is during this time that a Dallas based company, Stream Energy, came to the rescue of the locals affected and assisted in easing the recovery process.
It was among the first companies at that time to step in. The company came in handy especially in reducing the financial burden incurred by most of its customers. All this was made possible after Stream Energy had yielded significant energy sales in the past years.
Stream Energy has kept a tradition of putting corporate philanthropy among its top core values and priorities. To strengthen its philanthropy, Stream Energy launched its charity foundation known as Stream Cares. They believe it was one of the best ways of driving and increasing its philanthropy agenda in Texas and other areas in the United States of America.
Through its philanthropy and charity activities, Stream has been able to showcase it as a significant part of their brand. It has enabled the company to in one way or the other give back to the society in a unique way. As they do the philanthropy activities, the company creates a sense of togetherness between the people and them. One advantage is the company receives support from the public in case of any controversies or scandals that may rock them in their course of dispensing their mandates, e.g., decreases etc.
Stream Energy came up with an ingenious business system, whereby by directly selling its energy, it invests in its partners and develop a linkage of loyal customers and ultimately deliver a broader range of products and services.
Stream Energy partners, in the long run, earn commissions emanating from the sales made by working as an individual entrepreneur and business owners. The employees have been from time to time monitoring and checking the number of homeless people in Dallas.
They intervene through one of its hope projects known as Hope Project Company to supply essential commodities to the homeless, e.g., diapers, clothing, and school supplies. The company will continue playing its pivotal role in alleviating suffering especially the less fortunate and homeless in Dallas and Texas at large.
