Lotsa Helping Hands

Havurah's Lotsa Helping Hands network is coordinated by Adele Thompson and Janice Kettler.

Lotsa Helping Hands is an online scheduling system that enables Havurah members to sign up for tasks to help other members going through challenging times. Tasks could include making and delivering meals, making home visits, and more.

A coordinator confers with the member requesting help and posts the important details on the Lotsa Helping Hands calendar. The network of volunteers receive an email alerting them to new requests. They can easily go to the Lotsa Helping Hands website to check the calendar, see what is needed, and sign up for individual tasks. Regular reminders are sent to volunteers who sign up, so no one forgets their commitments.

So, if you have a new baby and need a break, a meal, a shoulder to lean on, call us. Knee or hip surgery? Give your caregivers a break, get meals delivered with a smile, and maybe have a chat to pass the time. And if you know of a member who might benefit from this kind of extra help, let one of the coordinators know. Havurah members are there for you!

To become a part of the volunteer helper network, contact one of the coordinators.
