Tennessee Serves has partnered with Purposity to empower Tennesseans to meet the tangible needs of neighbors without leaving home. With the free Purposity app, Tennesseans can now see the critical needs of students, individuals and families in real time and can choose to meet those needs directly from their phone. 

Purposity works with established nonprofits and school systems to connect the critical, physical needs of people with a vast community of users who want to help. The needs of Tennesseans on Purposity range from basic hygiene items such as deodorant for a homeless student to cookware for a single mother to new bedding for a Nashville family affected by the March tornados.

Tennesseans interested in serving neighbors through Purposity are encouraged to download the Purposity app, join the Tennessee Serves team on the app, and from there they will see a list of needs ready to be fulfilled.

Nonprofits and school districts interested in posting the needs of those they serve on Purposity are encourage to sign up on Purposity's website.
