The city of Dallas experienced the worst when Hurricane Harvey hit, and alongside the state’s major cities like Austin and Houston, they also experienced damages from the excessive rain coming from the hurricane. Dallas is home to many companies, including Stream Energy, and the effects of the disaster were devastating for the economy. Stream Energy provides affordable energy alternative for people living in Texas and the northeastern United States, and their services were affected heavily by the disaster. However, instead of realizing how much losses the company incurred as the devastation sweeps into the state, Stream Energy decided that they would have to mobilize their rescue team and provide relief to those who were affected.
Stream Energy introduced Stream Cares to the public shortly after the devastation brought by the hurricane. Stream Cares is a philanthropic department which will handle activities that will provide assistance and rescue operations to those who are affected by any disasters. Texas has never seen a hurricane like Harvey, and they were surprised by the power that it unleashed. Hurricane Harvey unleashed its power, destroying everything in its path. The torrential rains coming from the hurricane also resulted in the swelling of rivers across the state, flooding inland cities and towns. Communities were swept away by the flood, while coastal areas were pounded by huge storm surges. Survivors have no way to go but to the evacuation centers, where they will be safe.
As the number of people inside evacuation center swells, Stream Energy decided to step up and provided enough budget to Stream Cares to help those who are in need. The company collected food packs, water, clothes, medicine, and hygienic products to be distributed to those who survived. The company also handed out $20,000 as a donation to the American Red Cross. The company also ensured the survivors that they will be checking their properties and assess the damage cost, allowing them to file claims in their insurance policies. The company also promised that they will help in the restoration of the state’s energy sector, which will enable the power to return to the cities and towns battered by the strong hurricane.
