Dear Friend,


Featured this month:

No matter what time of year it is, we are often reminded (and continue to celebrate!) the many ways Lotsa members help one another in their communities. When May rolls around, we are especially grateful when we think of the hundreds of thousands of moms who volunteer in their communities at Lotsa and also benefit from being helped. May is also National Military Appreciation Month and inspires each of us to pause, honor and celebrate our nation’s military families. Read about some of these special communities over at our Story Project.

As Lotsa’s community continues to grow (we have more than 1.4 volunteers helping!), we’ve recently made it even easier for you to help your loved ones – our new Mobile App for iPhone is free and is available now in the App Store for download. So, whether you are helping your mom, bringing a meal to a military family, or supporting your neighborhood, use the Lotsa Mobile App to stay connected. Learn more about the App here.

Learn more about our new resources and special offers this May, below.

     From our Community to yours,

          Hal Chapel, Co-Founder & CEO
