New way to serve neighbors in need

First Lady Maria Lee’s Tennessee Serves challenge has moved some service challenges online through the smartphone app “Purposity.” The first challenge focuses on meeting the needs of Tennessee students and families across the state, including Bledsoe County.

In partnership with the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE), 34 school districts and Family Resource Centers are on the app, with more than 450 student needs around the state ready to be met by fellow Tennesseans.

Family Resource Centers are school-based hubs in Tennessee to help meet critical needs of the communities they serve. Bledsoe County Schools had several opportunities on the app when it launched last week to help students with things like coats and jackets for winter and a space heater for a family.
