The Chattooga County School System has recently partnered with Amazon and Purposity Program (purpose + generosity) to help students in need. Purposity is a program that helps community members find purpose through generosity and gives them the opportunity to anonymously help students through an online portal.
The program gives a way to connect people who can help with the people who need help. For students, it provides a way for people in the community to help meet the basic needs for them to be able to focus and do their best work.
For example if you knew a kid down the street had a simple need for a pair of sneakers you’d want to help, Purposity will allow you to help.
Chattooga County Schools Assistant Superintendent Jared Hosmer says, “it is a wonderful opportunity we as a community have to help a student in need from the palm of our hand.” If a student has a need, the need can be placed anonymously on Purposity with a short explanation and sent out in a weekly text. Community members who have signed up for Purposity will then have the opportunity to purchase the item through Amazon. The item will then be sent directly to the school to be given directly to the student.
In order for Chattooga County Schools to participate, they need 500 people to sign up for the program. If you are interested in signing up for Purposity go to https://www.purposity.com . All you have to do is enter your cell phone number and you will be able to choose Chattooga County School System.
There is no obligation to purchase anything in signing up. You will receive the weekly list and will be able to help the needs you choose.
