CARE.COM OFFERS FREE PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP FOR MILITARY FAMILIES IN RECOGNITION OF MILITARY APPRECIATION MONTH
Throughout May, Care.com to Offer Unlimited Access for Military Families Seeking Trusted Care Providers
WALTHAM, Mass., May 10, 2011- As a gift to military families in celebration of Military Appreciation Month, Care.com, the largest website for families to connect with trusted caregivers, is offering one free month of premium membership. The offer, effective immediately, will allow military families to access the services of hundreds of thousands of trusted caregivers.
"Military Appreciation Month is about recognizing and honoring the men and women who protect our country. This is our way of saying ‘thank you'. Military families move frequently and have unique care needs. Care.com supports Military families by providing access to a nationwide network of trusted caregivers," said Sheila Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com.
By visiting Care.com's Military page at www.care.com/military, visitors can register for free access this month and connect with local babysitters, nannies, special needs care, senior home care, pet sitters, tutors and housekeepers through a national network of trusted caregivers. Also, in honor of the Month of the Military Child, Care.com last month awarded military spouse Becky Palmer a check for over $12,000 to cover the cost of her family's childcare for the next year. The prize was presented at Operation Shower: Red White and Coo, a dream baby shower for 40 military moms-to-be at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama.
