NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A new app connects Metro Nashville Public School students with generous donors and educators in the community to gain them access to necessities that will help them to succeed.

The new Purposity app is made with those students who need a helping hand in mind. Whether it is a new coat for a preschooler, test prep materials for a high school junior, or toiletries for siblings who do not have them at home, Purposity helps to connect those willing to aid Metro Nashville Public School students with kids who are truly in need of assistance.

The app, which was launched last month, is easy to use and is a great way to spread some generosity this holiday season.

Users can quickly download the app from both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. From there, instructions will be given about creating an account and donating thereafter.

“This app is a place for people to know where to start to do good, to feel like they can make meaningful differences,” Blake Canterbury, founder of Purposity said. “We’re excited where this could lead. It opens up so many possibilities. Every kid should have food on their table and clothes on their back. Purposity gives people a way to help solve huge, long-term issues simply by starting in their own communities.”
