Stream Energy’s Green plans are not the only way the company is making a difference in the world. While philanthropy has always been a strong root of the company, earlier this year they developed an entire charitable arm of their growing business. While corporate America has always been known for being generous, it is not very often that they take the initiative to create a whole different arm dedicated just to philanthropy.

Corporate giving has been an important part of almost every company for many years, $19 billion was donated by business within the United States in just 2016 alone. This statistic is not taking into account a wide variety of other types of charitable efforts made by businesses. Habitat for Humanityand the Red Cross have had relationships with Stream Energy for years and through these organizations, they work hard to try to help the homeless population in Dallas and the surrounding areas. Stream Energy is based in Dallas, Texas but contributes to charitable efforts all around the United States. For Stream Energy, it is not just the company that helps their community, a large number of their independent associates also take time out of their schedules to help their communities in their own ways.
The subject of homelessness is one that is a cause that many people in the Stream family care deeply about. They have seen the homeless population in the Dallas and Houston areas go up a considerable amount immediately following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Thousands of families were displaced due to Hurricane Harvey and through the Hope Supply Co., they were able to help the children that lost their homes by giving them toiletries and personal items that would take care of their needs and provide them comfort on a daily basis. Stream Energy really does care about their community as well as the future of the environment.
