Hurricane Harvey was one of the most devastating catastrophes in the recent times where huge of people lost their places of abode, pets and some of them even their lives. Many corporations in the United States and abroad couldn’t do much and were helpless spectators. But amidst all of the havoc, there was one company Stream Energy which stood up for the victims and provided funds for the recovery process. Stream Energy has a very successful business model for its energy sales and they used the finances from it to help the hurricane victims. Even though the organization has been involved in a lot of charitable programs, they formally commenced their charity operations through a foundation called as ‘Stream Cares’.
For Hurricane Harvey, Stream Energy clearly proved how the corporations in the Dallas, Texas area have been generous about contributions towards tragedies and their unique philanthropic contributions. Stream Energy, as a company believes that philanthropic activities offer dual benefits. One of them is obviously giving back to the community whereas the other and the most important one is to earn the trust of potential clients and the general public. Since the corporate charities are often publicized and are discussed in public and media domains, it offers a lot of competitive advantages to the corporations. And the list does not stop here.
During the Texas Tornado chaos in 2016, Stream Energy stepped up immediately and raised thousands of dollars for the victims while directly working with the salvation army. While the associates were able to collect as much as they could, the organization matched the funds which resulted in converting the aid to two-fold. Corporate philanthropy is one of the key values within the organization and it believes in the concept of always finding potential areas to help and give back to the community as much as it could. This is one of the reasons, Stream Energy is termed as an organization with a heart which clearly is justified in the noble causes they are involved in. As per the senior leadership in the organization, they are committed to changing lives of individuals in any slightest form that they could.
