Time Banking is about local individuals helping each other out, one-on-one or with group projects.
They help build neighborhood networks and strengthen communities.
Time Banking can be as simple as a group of moms getting together to share carpooling kids to activities. It can also include services like child care, grocery shopping, taking care of elderly parents, walking dogs, and helping out with homework. The kinds of services people share in a Time Bank depend entirely on what their group or community needs.
Many Time Banks start small and add services as they go along, but that’s not always the case. In some communities, people have started Time Banks with a particular aim in mind: to create networks of companionship and support specific goals.
To learn how you can participate in starting Collingswood's TimeBanking program, come to our first orientation meeting. A representative from a local and successful Time Bank will be available to share his experiences and answer questions.
