Few natural catastrophes have been as devastating as hurricane Harvey was to the country. The storm left behind catastrophic destruction of property, people were removed from their homes, and many fatalities were recorded. Many philanthropists came forward to address the calamity. However, one of the few that stood out in their efforts to restore hope to the victims of the catastrophe was Stream Energy. Their efforts were even recorded on Patch. The role of the energy sales company was to help the victims of the hurricane cope with the financial burden which they left behind, and they have managed to reduce instances of homelessness in Dallas and other hard-hit areas.
Stream Energy spokesperson states that it has always been their tradition to help people in sticky situations. Their charity, known as streams cares, is in place to try and reach even more people affected by the storm. The name of their charity, Stream Cares may be new, but their activities have been going on for the past 12 years. The company is an accurate reflection of how those who have the ability and have drawn their success from the community, can use the same resources to enrich and empower the same community during their time of need.
What sets Stream Energy apart from the other companies which have existed before is that they have separated the charity part of the organization from the rest of the business entity. As a result, the activities of the charity are run independently, which increases their effectiveness. The company is, therefore, breaking new ground as far as corporate social investment is concerned in Dallas, and they hope to extend this to other cities.
Stream Energy has formed partnerships with other entities in a bid to reach their agenda. For instance, they have been able to collaborate with the Red Cross and the habitat for humanity, and both companies have been instrumental in helping them cover more ground in charity work. Stream also partnered with an organization called Hope to provide diapers and other support to new and nursing mothers. Given time, this organization is going to transform the world of philosophy completely.
