A time bank in Germantown
Help each other thrive and prosper.
A time bank is a “tool” that helps people in a community work together more like a village.
Time bank members offer their skills, talents, and favors, and in exchange get to benefit from the skills, talents, and favors provided by other members. It’s a little bit like barter except that it’s not for “goods,” and since the time bank logs your hours, you can earn hours from one member and spend them with another, rather than having to exchange with just one person.
GREAT's time bank has about 70 members and counting. Members meet at monthly gatherings and a website helps to track and facilitate the exchanges.
Take a look at the links below and SIGN UP HERE. Help is available for using the website.
If you're new to this and have questions, email or call 215-703-7707.
