Check out our new CCSD Giving App!

Are you looking for a way to help our scholars in need? If so, download the app Purposity! With Purposity, district staff and faculty (and the general public) can “give back” to CCSD students. Purposity connects neighbors in need with people who want to help. The partnership aims to fulfill the essential, physical needs of CCSD students. Examples of essential needs could include shoes or a coat for a homeless student or a small furniture item for a family who lost a home to fire.

The community is encouraged to download the Purposity app from your mobile device. Once you download the app and create an account, you'll be able to see and fulfill needs within CCSD. Once a week, followers will receive a friendly notification letting them know about needs from CCSD. Click the link, read the story, and decide if you'd like to help, right from your phone in under a minute.

The price of the item is clearly displayed, and the average request around $30. CCSD will take care of the shopping and shipping, making sure the exact item gets into the hands of who needs it most. The donor will get notifications updating them of their item's progress and when it arrives, along with a thank you message.

Needs will be submitted and vetted by Sonya Jones, Homeless Education Coordinator, and representatives in the Office of Family and Community Engagement. Just type in Purposity in the Google Play Store of Apple Store, type in Charleston County School District, and start giving! All donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you for your continued willingness to help our scholars in need.
