In our mission to activate and advance the potential in every child by doing whatever it takes to ensure they have GREAT FUTURES, Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania is excited to announce that it will be the first organization in the state of Pennsylvania to partner with Purposity, a platform dedicated to inspiring our online community to live generously and find purpose! Purposity allows the community at large to help us meet the needs of our BGCWPA families. Right now many BGCWPA members and their families need our help more than ever.
We’ve already served 65,000 meals, delivered over 800 resources to families door steps and served 2,000 hot meals in 9 communities and Purposity will allow us to meet more needs for even more families. In addition to our current family support services which includes deliveries of these resources like hygiene, cleaning, art and food boxes, we will also be delivering items specific to families in need – from baby items to school supplies to even technology! Our Healthy Lifestyles program not only features these types of support services but our mentoring programs, Positive Action & the Teen Outreach Program (TOP), and our Great Start juvenile justice diversion program.
Purposity is an Atlanta-based organization formed on the principle that individuals find purpose through generosity. Their mission is to connect people in need with those that can help meet that immediate need through an app, making it easy for neighbors to help neighbors. Purposity allows users to know the exact need their donation is meeting. To learn more, visit www.purposity.com.
How Purposity Works:
BGCWPA staff members help to identify the needs of our families. BGCWPA spreads the word to individuals near us o
r who are willing to help by posting the need on the Purposity app. They click a link, see the need, and make a difference for someone near them. Purposity sends the items directly to BGCWPA to distribute to protect the privacy of those in need. It’s easy, simple and it takes just a few clicks to make a difference in someone’s life one need at a time.
By simply downloading the app, users are sent a notification once a week with a specific physical need they can meet. With just a few clicks, the items are in the hands of our members.
BGCWPA needs 200 followers to launch our page! Follow us today and help meet the immediate needs of our community DIRECTLY!
