A Big Difference Starts Small … and Grows Quickly!

By Stream Energy Senior Director of Communications Paul Thies

This holiday season, the Stream Energy employee family has been actively engaged in a toy drive to end all toy drives. In 2009, we set a record for toy donations made to Captain Hope’s Kids, and it was our stated goal for 2010 to smash last year’s results.

In a word, we crushed it.

Thanks to the combined generosity of all Stream Energy employees and many of our Ignite Associates, we gathered 2,313 toys for Captain Hope’s Kids this year.

If you visited the Stream Energy office in Dallas yesterday, you likely noticed that a camera crew took over the Diane Davis Auditorium space.

This was part of our planned New Year’s Eve sponsorship of the Big D NYE Fireworks Spectacular and New Year’s Eve countdown on WFAA Channel 8.

But we’re not just simply sponsoring one of the largest fireworks displays in the United States; we’re also using that bully pulpit to help spread the word about the good works performed by Captain Hope’s Kids.

Senior staff from Captain Hope’s Kids joined Stream Energy chairman Rob Snyder on camera to share their appreciation for all the toys donated by Stream Energy employees. More importantly, they shared the message that homeless children in our community need support. And their friends at Stream Energy are there for them!

As we prepare for the New Year, enjoy a video clip from WFAA promoting our Stream Energy Fireworks Spectacular.
