#AskStacey: Want to volunteer? There's an app for that

Legacy Pro app

SAN ANTONIO -- If you're looking to get more involved in the community, a San Antonio-based app can help.

It's called Legacy.

"With Legacy, you can make a donation from almost anywhere in the world," Legacy founder Robert Stovall said.

Stovall is an Alamo City native and West Point grad. He said he and his brother were inspired to start the app to help others give back.

"After my second deployment in Afghanistan, I decided to go forward with this app," Stovall said.

You can donate to local non-profits directly through the app.

"We have a lot of absolutely fantastic organizations; from Providence Place, Work Out Help Out and the Rape Crisis Center, for example," Stovall said.

Stovall said nonprofits will receive their donation within 24 hours.

Legacy lets you search for volunteer opportunities in the San Antonio area, sign up to help out and track your service hours.

The app went live about six months ago.

So far, it's raised more than $12,000 and spurred nearly 200 volunteer hours for local nonprofits.

"Get out and get involved. I think this is an excellent opportunity for someone to get out in their community, find out what's going on and learn about great organizations," Stovall said.

The founders hope to expand Legacy and work with more nonprofits.

It's free to download and works on Apple and Android smartphones.
