Monroe County Schools Family Resource Center has partnered with Purposity, an app connecting users with one-to-one needs in their community. The partnership aims to fulfill the essential needs of the students and families of Monroe County.
The Purposity app sends a weekly notification to users with a need in their area. With just a few clicks, people can provide needs ranging from shoes and jackets for a local student to small household items for a family that lost their home in a fire. "We wanted to create a way for communities to connect and unite in a meaningful way," state Blake Canterbury, founder and CEO. "Our belief is that if you knew your neighbor needed help, you'd help."
Those who sign up receive an alert with a link to a story of an individual in need and can then choose to meet that need right on their phone. The requested item is in the hands of the organization in just a few days. It takes one notification, under a minute, and a few clicks to make a difference for our students.
To join the movement to support FRC, download the app from the App Store or Google Play and be sure to follow Monroe County Schools.
