How to use "Lend a hand" in context?

In the severe recession of 2007-2009, many people were out of work and needed a hand. A number of organizations in the United States and elsewhere offered "job sharing", or lending a hand in return for help with a small job or task. In a job sharing arrangement, two people agree to share the responsibility for a job. One person does the bulk of the work, while the other person provides support by doing tasks that are easier or less demanding.

The benefits of job sharing are many. It can help prevent employee burnout, since regular rotation of tasks keeps everyone fresh.
