I have a friend who has recruited me for the Onion River Exchange. It’s a network of people who request and offer services from each other. One of the reasons I signed up for it is because one hour of work equals one hour of work, regardless of the work. It works as a time bank. So, for every hour you help someone else, you can ask for help from somebody else. The way the Times Argus puts it, “A time bank is a network of individuals who provide their skills or services to earn community credits, which they can exchange for the skills and services of others.” It’s fairly new here in town but is quickly catching on. Another nice thing is that you can waive your member donation ($25/individual or $40/household) by volunteering 2 hours of time. This should make everyone feel included! Love it!
