Purchase Area KY Time Bank
The Purchase Area TimeBank was started in 2012 with three main goals:
- Strengthen the fabric of our community. Networks are stronger than individuals.
- Serve people and give a means to serve.
- Establish new relationships and meet real needs of our community members.
We are all assets and recognize that each person has talents to share, and that the overall community is strengthened when neighbors help one another. For every hour that you help meet the needs of another member, you earn a time dollar for the exchange. This time dollar can then be redeemed for services from others, and the cycle of reciprocity continutes! The TimeBank as of June 2012 has 70 members and has a wide range of talents. We can't wait to meet you and help you to start exchanging time!
So What is TimeBanking?
Time dollars are a type of community currency that anyone can earn by using their time, evergy, skills, and talents to help others. Members trade all types of every day services, including gardening, minor home repair, transportation, computer maintenance, tutoring, etc. Services may vary widely depending on the skills, talents, and abilities of the current members. Time Banking welcomes all to participate, including youth and the elderly.
