Stream Energy Expands Partnership with Captain Hope’s Kids
(Dallas, Texas November 17, 2010) – Stream Energy, the largest network marketer of energy in America, has announced expansion of the firm’s partnership with Captain Hope’s Kids, a charitable organization which meets the critical needs of homeless children in the North Texas area.
As part of its commitment, Stream Energy unveiled a campaign, “A Big Difference Starts Small.” Stream Energy Chairman Rob Snyder announced that the initiative will include an extension of the company’s spring 2010’s record-setting diaper drive and the holiday seasonal Toy Drive. Additional initiatives will be announced soon.
To give greater visibility of the work of Captain Hope’s Kids, the organization’s Executive Director Jeanne Reyer will join Rob Snyder in helping to launch the Stream Energy-sponsored spectacular fireworks display climaxing the New Year’s Eve Big D NYE. The celebration at Victory Park in Dallas will air live on WFAA, Channel 8 December 31st.
“New Year’s Eve is a celebration of renewal and hope,” said Rob Snyder. “We are very proud to draw deserved attention to Captain Hope’s Kids, which in 2009 touched the lives of 32,000 children from homeless families.” He continued, “Families with children make up 47 percent of the homeless population in the Dallas metropolitan area. Captain Hope’s Kids provides needed goods and services to these unfortunates – and Stream Energy is going to help.” Captain Hope’s Kids works with 40 service providers to provide basic items to homeless mothers and their children.
One featured segment and one commercial sponsored by Stream Energy highlighting the work of the 20-year old non-profit organization will air on WFAA, Channel 8, during the New Year’s Eve program.
