The Dallas Patch recently featured a company in the city, Stream Energy, for their work in the community after Hurricane Harvey. Faced with the devastating effects of the flooding, residents received help from Stream, which helped fund the recovery. Moreover, the company donated furniture to Port Author families whose homes were affected. In 2016, Stream worked with the Salvation Army to help Tornado victims the day after Christmas. Since Stream Energy already has already worked closely with the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, the company decided to create their own charitable foundation, Stream Cares.
Stream Energy’s revenue comes from independent associates who sell the company’s energy, mobile phone plans and telemedicine. The associates are entrepreneurs who support causes that they care about, adding to Stream’s corporate philanthropy. Both Stream and its independent associates care about Dallas’ rising homeless rate.
Stream partnered with Hope Supply Co. four years ago, and the energy company recently Steam footed the bill for more than 1,000 homeless children in North Texas to spend the day at Hawaiian Falls Water Park with a picnic lunch included.
Stream’s Operation Once in a Lifetime holds events for Dallas-area veterans, their spouses and their children, such as presenting daughters of veterans with American Girl dolls and hosting a lunch at the American Girl Cafe. While Stream Energy gives money generously, the company also donates time and effort to worthy causes.
Founded in 2005, Stream Energy transformed the way energy is sold, becoming one the largest direct energy sales companies in the world. While Stream only sells electricity in certain states, independent associates in all states can sell the company’s can sell mobile plans, roadside assistance, credit monitoring and identity protection plans. Stream Energy also holds an annual Women of Power Retreat for female independent associates, where speakers and workshops help empower the women to succeed in business.
