LOTSA HELPING HANDS: Do you know what it is? How it works? Who can use it?

LOTSA HELPING HANDS was for many years in the capable hands of Havurah member Lisa Kenn. She was attentive, thoughtful and organized in finding those HELPING HANDS in our community. Thank you Lisa! Recently, the baton has been passed to new coordinators, in fact, four new coordinators. We are Linda Appel, Ted Scheinman, Emily Kurzweil and Susan Lazareck.

Susan Lazareck is the lead during March and April. Please contact her at susanlazareck@gmail.com if you would like to join our growing community of helping hands or if you would welcome help from other Havurah members.

You can learn more about Lotsa Helping Hands by visiting the Lotsa Helping Hands website. But please contact one of Havurah's Lotsa Helping Hands community leaders to join the Havurah group.
 
Lotsa Helping Hands enables Havurah community members to schedule and sign up for tasks to help members going through challenging times. This could include making and delivering meals, providing transportation to medical appointments, and making home visits. Tasks are posted on the Lotsa Helping Hands calendar by a coordinator and requesting member. Volunteers can easily see what is needed and sign up for individual tasks, and an email can be sent to the Lotsa Helping Hands network of volunteers, alerting them to the need for help. 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 … we have volunteers for you.  Knee or hip surgery? Give your caregivers a break, get meals delivered with a smile and maybe have a chat to pass the time. Havurah members are here for  you!
 
If a member needs help with meals during a time of illness or healing, they or someone acting on their behalf should contact one of the LHH community leaders, who will help with setting up the request on the LHH site. They can specify whether they'd like to have meals delivered only, or if they'd welcome a visit when the meals are delivered.
