For some reason a lot of people think that they have to choose between helping out their local community and doing what is obviously best for their bottom line. They put themselves in a situation like this where they are only left with those two options. It is unfortunate that so many feel the need to make it an all or nothing type of approach like this because it so rarely is in real life.
Stream Energy has found a way to do good and help out their bottom line at the same time. What they do is use charitable work and giving as part of their overall approach to doing business. They know that by helping out those in need that they will build up goodwill towards the company that will pay off in the end.
Recently, Stream Energy teamed up with Hope Supply Co. to help out victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston. It made a lot of sense for Stream Energy to move into try to help with that particular disaster given the fact that they service the area and the fact that they are the kind of company that does care about its Texas neighbors.
Stream Energy made a charitable giving branch of its business to handle these types of interactions. They wanted to make sure they had the ability to give and give some more when the opportunities struck.
There has been a lot of success coming out of the operations that Stream Energy has put together so to speak related to giving away money. They are so happy to see the people of Houston starting to get back on their feet. It means that people from their local community are once again able to start to return to their day to day lives. Stream Energy also knows that those same people will not soon forget the work that Stream put in to help them get to this point.
It is a testament to the spirit of Houston that they are back and at it again so quickly. It may also have a little to do with the helping hand that they have received.
