Stream Energy has a corporate DNA. Every company does to one degree or another. Stream is a little different, however, because their corporate DNA seems to be fused tightly with charitable work. Now, lots of companies say that charity is ingrained in their DNA, but Stream Energy is using actions to prove that to everyone in the Dallas area. The energy company, that has a very peculiar business model, has been heavily active in pretty much all areas of charity in the Dallas area of years. It is impossible to pin down a specific issue that drives Stream because it seems like they are driven by every issue under the sun. They have been grabbing headlines for the work as well. In fact, they were recently featured on Patch.com for their charitable work as well.
Stream Energy’s charitable work branches far beyond donating some money to the Red Cross (although Stream does have a deep relationship with Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity). Instead, we are going to look at some of the things that Stream does around the Dallas area that are more direct. Recently, Stream paid for the meals and supplies of homeless children during the Splash for Hope. Stream has directly stated that the homelessness increase worries them and that they would actively attempt to combat it via charity. Stream also paid for veterans meal at a famous Dallas steakhouse. The next day, they even took the daughters of the veterans to the American Girl doll company and paid for an American Girl doll and American Girl Cafe experience for each of them. Don’t worry, they got to take the dolls home.
Stream was also one of the first companies to hit the ground on the relief efforts after the devastating hurricane Harvey hit Dallas. This action is what earned them the Patch article. This shouldn’t have surprised Patch, Stream Energy also did the exact same thing after the tornadoes hit the Dallas area as well. Stream has always been active in charities around Dallas. A trend that I think all of us hope that they continue.
