Purposity app - you can help families in need
Would you help if you knew a Rockdale student needed shoes or a jacket or a Rockdale County family lost their home in a fire? Rockdale County Public Schools announces a new partnership with Purposity, an app where you can find out what students need and fulfill those needs. Help us reach our goal: we need 500 caring people to sign up in order to launch the program!

Download the Purposity app in the App Store or Google Play and sign up. Once we’ve reached our goal of 500 supporters, RCPS will begin to post needs. (Click here for Purposity Introduction Video.)

•    Needs are verified and posted by a small number of trained RCPS student support employees.
•    Needs range from items like shoes and jackets to school supplies and small household items.
•    The requested item arrives to RCPS within a few days. School social workers and school counselors will ensure that the family receives the item.
•    Get one weekly notification – you can opt out at any time.
•    Read the short description of the need and decide if you’ll help right from your phone.
•    It features user profiles, which track your giving and allows you to see your impact. You’ll receive a message when the item is delivered!
•    You will receive a tax deduction form in January for the previous year.

It’s now simple to make a difference for our students, right from your phone! You can now help us serve our students by fulfilling their most basic needs.
