In our mission to develop in each student the knowledge, skills and behaviors essential for life-long learning and for productive, responsible citizenship, we are always looking to join forces with partners and organizations who will help us make a bigger impact in the lives of the students we serve. With this in mind, we are excited to introduce our newest partner, Purposity!
If you knew a kid down the street had a simple need – for example, sneakers for school – chances are you’d help, right? But, it’s hard to know the needs of real people in your community because there’s never been a super easy way to connect the people who could really use help with the people who want to offer it.
Enter our new app partnership: Purposity. Its name comes from purpose + generosity, and it allows you to quickly and easily lend a hand to our students. By signing up, you’re sent one weekly notification with specific needs: 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. You decide if you want to help and meet a need in just a few clicks, right from your phone. You’ll know exactly who you’re helping and why. It’s the simplest way to make an impact locally.
To be a part of our Willis, Purposity movement, download the Purposity app in the App Store or Google Play, and follow 'Willis Independent School District.'
