Stream Energy is changing the state of Texas as we once knew it. Texas has been known for its low levels of generosity. Though Stream Energy has not reversed that completely, they are increasing the generosity rating for the state. Stream monitors homelessness on a daily basis. Recently there has been a 24 percent decrease in displaced individuals in the state. Stream used that as fuel to give back. They partnered with the Hope Supply Co. to co-sponsor an event at the local waterpark for homeless children. The Hope Supply Co. is a non-profit organization that donates supplies to homeless families. They provide them with diapers, clothing, and even school supplies. The purpose of the waterpark event was to give the children an experience that they will never forget. Circumstances may exist for them and their families, but it doesn’t mean that they can’t have fun. Stream paid the cover and meal cost for more than 1000 children. Associates of Stream Energy came out to join the fun by facilitating the event and making sure that the children were safe and enjoying their day at the waterpark. The associates are the biggest fans of the community. That is why they are carefully selected to carry on and enhance the legacy of Stream. Stream Energy has also created Stream Cares, which is a philanthropic arm, that partners with other organizations to extend their reach to not only Texas but to the entire world. Another example of how Stream gives back to their community is the Once in a Lifetime Event. The two-day event honors military veterans and their families. The first day consists of a dinner at a Texan restaurant. The second day honors the daughters of the veterans. 10 of the girls get to pick out an American Girl doll of their choice. They also get to enjoy lunch at the American Girl Cafe. Stream Energy covers all of the expenses and even provides transportation. Stream is creating a positive trend for giving back to those in need. It is a contagious trend that will continue to increase the generosity score in the state of Texas.
