Corporate America gives. Companies give to those in need, especially when things are looking up, and the profits are huge. It is not something that just happens. A lot of planning goes into it, and there is always the usual hype about the particular company’s philanthropic efforts.
Interestingly, a lot of companies that give during good times do nothing when their benevolence would make the most impact.
One company, though, differentiated itself from the rest by moving fast and helping those in distress after Hurricane Harvey flooded Houston. Their giving was purely altruistic and unplanned — they helped because they cared.
When Hurricane Harvey Hit Hard
The disaster happened fast, leaving in its wake death, suffering, and destruction of property. Most companies in the affected area and across the United States just watched and sympathized, but not Stream Energy.
Patch featured the Stream Energy for having moved fast to give a helping hand to those the catastrophe had left homeless and devastated. It is clear the hugely successful energy selling business gave to alleviate suffering and not merely to gain recognition.
Stream Helped Texas Tornado Victims
Thousands of people in North Texas lost their homes and businesses the day after Christmas in 2016. Working alongside the Salvation Army, Stream Energy associates raised a lot of money to support the affected business people and homeowners. The company matched the donation, doubling the funds.
Stream Energy Cares Deeply
The Dallas-based company has always extended a helping hand, earning deep respect from the beneficiaries and others in Texas and beyond. The company has always supported those in need; their philanthropic efforts go back more than a decade.
Recently, the direct selling company launched a foundation, Stream Cares, whose sole mandate is to carry out charitable work in Texas and the rest of the country.
