Stream Energy is an emerging energy provider headquartered in Texas. The company has expanded to other states, providing the locals with affordable energy. In recent years, Stream Energy has also focused on philanthropic activities, benefiting the locals who have been heavily affected by disasters. Stream Energy started their philanthropic activities back when the company is only a few years old. They did not have any specific department to handle their philanthropic efforts, but they had to rely on the volunteerism of their employees. As more and more people benefited from the assistance provided by Stream Energy, the company soon launched a separate department that handles all of their philanthropic activities, calling it as Stream Cares.
Stream Cares initially had a few volunteers, but this number grew exponentially as more people wanted to share their expertise on the company’s philanthropic department, helping a lot of people in the process. One of the most memorable events for Stream Cares would be the time during the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The devastating 2017 hurricane is tied with Hurricane Katrina as the costliest natural disasters in the United States. Many homes were devastated by its high-speed winds, and storm surges inundated the coastal areas of Texas. The inner cities were not spared from the devastation, as Hurricane Harvey caused the rivers to swell, and the flood it created swept away homes and even communities. The city of Dallas was flooded, and billions worth of damages was recorded in the city. Knowing that a natural calamity is destroying their home state, Stream Energy started to mobilize their philanthropic team and sent in as many people as they can to help those who are affected.
Stream Cares came to the rescue, helping those who were trapped above the roofs of their homes. They also gave away food packs and clean water bottles to those who are staying inside evacuation centers. Aside from providing food and water, Stream Energy also provided clothes, blankets, and sanitary products to those who have escaped the wrath of Hurricane Harvey. Through Stream Cares, the company also donated a considerable amount to the American Red Cross.
