Whitfield County Schools is excited to announce a partnership with
Purposity, an app connecting community members in need with those that can help. YOU can make a difference right from your phone.

The company’s vision takes aim at uniting neighbors and communities around purpose by easily connecting them with opportunities for generosity.

Dubbed Your Tool for Good, the Purposity app allows you to quickly and easily lend a hand to our students and families. By signing up, you’re sent just one weekly notification with a specific need determined by our school social workers. It might be a winter jacket for a student in one of our schools or household essentials for a family that lost its home in a fire. Decide if you want to help and meet a need in just a few clicks, right from your phone. The requested item is in the hands of the one in need in just a few days. It’s the simplest way to make an impact locally.

"This is a perfect opportunity for our community members to know and understand the needs here in Whitfield County,” said Dr. Tracie Hogan Simmons, lead social worker for Whitfield County Schools. “This also allows our community to respond in a way that shows care and concern for our young people, which in turn makes our community stronger."

To be a part of our Purposity movement, download the app in the App Store or Google Play Store, and follow Whitfield County Schools.
