Stream Energy Supports Captain Hope’s Kids with Record-Setting Donation
Chairman Rob Snyder Announces Donation of over 46,000 Diapers to Benefit Homeless Children.
Captain Hope’s Kids was founded in 1989. Its primary focus is to provide basic necessities for homeless mothers, children and infants. In 2009, in collaboration with 38 different agencies, Captain Hope’s Kids received and distributed 513,743 critically needed items, touching the lives of approximately 32,000 homeless children.
“Thanks to the generosity of our employees, Stream Energy collected over 46,000 diapers,” said Stream Energy Chairman Rob Snyder. “This allows us to help over 6,000 homeless children through Captain Hope’s Kids, supplying four shelters with diapers. With these shelters providing over 5,000 diapers a day, Stream Energy is able to participate in meeting a significant need of our homeless community.”
“The increasing number of homeless families with babies creates a sharp rise in the need for diapers and training pants. Because homeless parents are often unable to afford these items, many infants suffer poor health and hygiene,” said Jeanne Reyer, Executive Director for Captain Hope’s Kids. “Stream Energy has proven itself to be a phenomenal friend of Captain Hope’s Kids, and we are so grateful for the support they are providing to our homeless children.”
Last year Captain Hope’s Kids distributed more than 416,650 diapers and pairs of training pants — approximately 8,100 every week.
During the holiday season of 2009, Stream Energy broke Captain Hope’s charity record with 1,711 toys donated, helping over 800 children.
