The people at Stream Energy have earned themselves a lot of friends in the Houston area because of the actions that they have taken. They watched with the rest of the country as the city of Houston was hit by Hurricane Harvey. It was a devastating blow that left some people without their lives, property, or other important objects. This kind of grief all boiled into one particular geographic area was almost too much for some to handle. Fortunately, there are companies like Stream Energy that stepped in to help.
The people at Stream Energy teamed up with individuals from Hope Supply Co. to help figure out some plans of actions for how they could deliver the most help to the most people in the immediate impacted area. What they decided was that they would need to create a branch of the company that was specifically dedicated to charitable giving. If they could do that then it would be a lot easier to reach those who needed to be reached.
They settled on doing this and it has worked out well. People in Houston have appreciated the help that they have received from Stream Energy, and the company has appreciated the flood of free press that they have gotten for doing this. This was not the primary reason why they opted to help out, but it is something that helped push the needle in the direction that it needed to go.
Corporate America is actually pretty good about giving to help out their communities as we speak. They do this in a number of ways, but the important thing is that they do it at all. In 2016 alone corporations gave away $19 billion dollars to charities and worthy causes throughout the country and in other parts of the world as well. This has been very much noticed and appreciated.
We stand at a moment when there is simply too many problems in the world to tackle them all. It is nice to know that some companies are at least attempting to do what they can to try to make things a little better.
