Member Testimony

“First of all, I just wanted to thank you for starting up the York Time Bank. I think it’s important you know just how much of a blessing this mission has been to me so far. I’ve only had a couple of “transactions” so far, but they have both been so so much above and beyond what I expected… Such good feelings and positive energy–things that everyone needs in their lives but for my specific situation at the moment, I just can’t tell you what a help it’s been to my spirit, my physical energy, and my well-being.

So, thank you. Whole-heartedly!”

St. Patty’s Day Parade!

Hi Time Bankers!

On March 15 York City will celebrate the Luck of the Irish with it’s annual St. Patty’s Day Parade. If you are interested in participating by helping to design a York County Time Bank float, or walk along in the parade dressed in “character” please email Francie Delaney at transitionyorkpenn@gmail.com by February 8th to express your interest. Remember that any time you spend helping design the float or walking in the parade is time for your bank!

Remember: Spend your time, Save your money!

Christmas Caroling at Autumn House West

Approximately 20 members of the York County Time Bank spent their evening on Thursday December 19, 2014 singing Christmas Carols with the residents of Autumn House West Assisted Living Facility. One of our members, Mike, brought his guitar to accompany the vocalists. Polly Weiss organized the event and worked the room to ensure that all participants had a great time. Joli Harrington brought percussion instruments that transformed the audience into participants! It was a wonderful evening for the carolers and residents alike!

Besides community building and speading holiday cheer, the time bank members who participated also earned time for their account by offering the service of Marketing and Publicity to the Time Bank! We would love to have more events like this in our community. If you have ideas or suggestions, please feel free to email yorkcountytimebank@gmail.com or post to the Facebook page!

Mobile App Available!!

Hi all,

The mobile apps are HERE! The survey link below will lead you to the download
links for the apps. Thank You in advance for your participation and
dedication to time banking. We are VERY excited to provide this brand new
opportunity.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded a team of researchers at
the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and the Pennsylvania State
University (PSU) to conduct scientific research into timebanking. Their goal
is to understand timebanking practices and the role that technology plays
in enabling them and to develop new innovative technologies to make it
much easier to do and more popular. The hOurworld founders and software
architects have agreed to support this research, so we are requesting
members’ input to help us understand your practices and needs better.

Your honest and unvarnished feedback will greatly benefit your community
and the timebanking movement in general, so please tell us what you really
think, including being critical.

Below is the survey link, and in it you’ll be pointed to links where you
can download a new mobile timebanking app at the end of the survey. You
can add half an hour to your local hOurworld exchange account for completing
this survey.

Thank you very much for your generous help!
