If you aren’t aware of the horrific damage Hurricane Harvey did to Houston and surrounding areas, then you must be living under a rock. In late August of last year, Hurricane Harvey hit the state of Texas, and the resulting effects were catastrophic to many of its citizens. Flooding caused the most trouble, and the hurricane’s reported 56 inches of rain caused unimaginable issues. While some lost their homes, others lost their lives. Almost no one got away without some type of loss from the storm, and the aftermath of the hurricane was an extremely dark place for millions living in and around Houston. But in their most harrowing hour, several groups jumped in an offered assistance. Stream Energy, an energy sales corporation, was one of the very first doing their best to aid the city.
Stream Energy didn’t waste any time lending a hand to the city. As an incredibly successful energy company, Stream Energy was fortunately in a great position to offer assistance. Of course, this doesn’t make their contributions any lesser. Stream Energy is fundamentally built around helping those who need it, and their quick addressing of the issues brought by Hurricane Harvey showcases this. In many ways, Stream’s biggest source of pride is their charity efforts, and they are always looking to become even better in this regard. Because of this, the company launched a specific, charity-centered branch called Stream Cares.
While corporations all over the globe partake in philanthropy, Stream’s decision to branch into a separate entity is pretty unique. However, it signifies a clear dedication to the bettering of Houston and Texas in general. But it’s clear that Stream’s efforts to assist others isn’t vain; rather, it is embedded in the core of the company, and is something that every member of Stream has access to. Regardless of one’s role in Stream Energy, he or she is given a number of different ways that they can help give back to the community. Sales associates, in particular, become familiar with a growing list of clients, and these relationships often become the catalyst for long-term philanthropic endeavors.
While Stream Cares was founded in response to the hurricane and the way it damaged Houston, the company has a list of social issues held dear. Homelessness is one issue Stream intends to help throughout the next few years, and their work in this area is encouraging. When such a successful company shows the motivation to help others, the results are always incredible.
