The Dallas Patch reports on the philanthropic efforts of one of Dallas’ most successful energy companies. Stream Energy began its utility business in 2005, and later expanded in 2008 to the Georgia market and is currently operating in eleven states in the U.S. The company’s business focus is in home and commercial utilities including gas, power, phone, including wireless phones, and home security services. They offer extremely competitive rates to their customers and provides a way for the customers to earn free energy services by sharing the Stream Energy opportunity with others. Stream Energy employs approximately 500 people. The sales positions pay commissions and additional rewards are also offered. Simply put, “The more you sell, the more you earn”. It’s a direct marketing opportunity, so you own your own business, receive free energy and services, plus additional income each month.
This ‘share the wealth’ concept doesn’t end with their employees. Stream Energy has a strong philanthropic foundation called Stream Cares. They believe that giving back to their communities is the heart of who they are as a company. The Dallas Patch reports on the volunteer efforts of the Stream Energy employees during the Hurricane Harvey natural disaster. Thousands of Texas residents were affected and left without their homes, personal belongings, access to food, water, and even money. Even more tragically, many lost their loved ones and family pets. Many businesses were lost or severely damaged, so even if you had money, access to banks and ATMs were severely impacted. It’s so hard for anyone to imagine that level of devastation unless you have been through it yourself. The generosity of this organization was tremendously felt by the Texas residents and did not go unnoticed by the Press.
Taking the time to help these communities recover from this disaster was not about notoriety for this company. They didn’t just write a check to receive a write up in the news. They came out into the neighborhoods, donated food, water, and supplies to the residents: face to face and hand to hand. This act of human kindness is true American greatness.
