Today in the remote village of Tasharte, Guatemala, the village . . .
Corporate partner since 2004
What began as a small, family-owned business has grown into a nationally recognized company that is making a global difference. In 1955, Harry Streelman founded Battery Systems, a wholesale distributor of batteries and battery-related products. Harry’s son, Brad, took over the business in 1983, supervising its growth into a company that now has 75 warehouses across the country. While Battery Systems continues to grow, Brad has never forgotten his parents’ insistence on generosity.
In 1999, Brad and a group of his fellow California businessmen started Kingdom Partners — a group that raises funds to help people in need around the world. Brad was introduced to World Help when Kingdom Partners was looking for a humanitarian organization to support. His company has given to a variety of World Help projects since then, impacting countless lives.
Battery Systems and the Streelman family are currently sponsoring a Village Transformation in Tasharte, Guatemala. The remote village suffers from extreme poverty, but through the gift of clean water, a renovated school, a church building, and a new home for the local pastor, the community now has hope for a bright future. Brad hopes the relationship between Battery Systems and the people of Tasharte will last for many years to come.
World Help is thankful to the Streelman family and Battery Systems for their continued generosity to help change the world — one person at a time.
