DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stream, a Dallas-based leading energy, connected life services and direct selling company, donated $25,000 to the American Red Cross to support Hurricane Matthew relief efforts, through its philanthropic arm, Stream Cares.
Stream is also waiving international calling fees for its Wireless customers, allowing them to call without fees until October 20 from anywhere in the United States to the following countries: Aruba, Commonwealth of the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, Republic of Haiti, Jamaica, St. Martin, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Turks and Caicos.
The $25,000 sum represents a corporate donation as well as funds raised by Stream’s team of Independent Associates, who convened in Dallas this past weekend for the company’s Connect 2016 event, which was originally set to occur in Orlando. To close out the event, Stream President and CEO Larry Mondry presented a check to Natalie Valenti Butters, Corporate Partnerships Officer of American Red Cross North Texas Region.
“After moving our Connect event due to Hurricane Matthew, we at Stream wanted to do our part to help those hit the hardest by the natural disaster,” said Mondry. “We knew the American Red Cross was the best recipient of our donation. As the premier disaster relief organization, we’re confident our contribution will go directly to those needing help getting back on their feet after the hurricane. And by waiving our international calling fees, we can help our customers connect with their family, friends and loved ones in the affected areas.”
“It is good to know that our friends at Stream are eager to help us fulfill the mission of American Red Cross,” said Keith Rhodes, Chief Executive Officer, American Red Cross North Texas Region. “This generous donation will help families impacted by Hurricane Matthew by providing them with much needed items such as blankets, food, toothbrushes and other personal hygiene items as well as cleaning supplies. Donations like this truly help to pave the road to recovery for disaster victims.”
Held in Dallas October 7-8, 2016, Stream’s Connect 2016 event brought together the Stream corporate team and Associates from across the country, focusing on learning, business building, growth, and leadership. During the annual two-day event, Stream announced new promotions and service-related news, and hosted world champion swimmer Diana Nyad and motivational speaker Willie Jolley as keynote speakers.
