The TimeBank is seeking sign up a few new members with a couple of specific skills: We especially need someone who can do tech support for Mac users. And we need someone with a truck who is willing to do dump runs and the hauling of heavy objects. Members need to be available to each other three hours per month.

We’re currently signing up lots of new elders in their 80s and 90s who need a helping hand. Are you available to give occasional rides to appointments, errands, to the library? Could you do some light housekeeping and laundry? Please step up. If everyone does their bit, all needs can be met.

Can you cut hair? Do massage, teach yoga or Tai Chi? Do you know how to make salves and lotions, candles, wreaths, quilts, preserves? We’re always looking for resourceful folks with practical skills to share.

Timebanking differs from volunteerism in that it requires reciprocity. You’ll earn TimeCredits for every hour you help another member. You can spend those TimeCredits on any service in the network. Services categories include Arts, Crafts and Music, Business and Clerical, Care/Companionship, Computing/Electronics, Education & Languages, Food Prep, Health and Wellness, Home and Garden, Minor Home Repairs, Sports and Leisure and Transportation.

Anyone willing to maintain a high level of trust is invited to join. Join here:
