Precinct 74 Hosts: Community Building with Timebanks

Guest Speaker: Arleatha Patterson
Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods
Topic: Community Building with Timebanks

Timebanking is a time-based currency that helps to build circles and network of mutual support. With timebanking, you give one hour of service to another, and receive one time credit. An hour is always an hour — regardless of the service offered. You can use the credits in turn to receive services — or you can donate them to others.

Timebanks are formed when people come together to use time credits to achieve a shared goal. Many choose to focus on community building. But timebanks have also focused on tutoring in schools, health and wellness efforts, hospital discharge support, juvenile justice, helping seniors to age in community, civic engagement and more.

All Forsyth County voters are invited to attend this joint precinct meeting hosted by Precinct 74 to learn about the Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods Timebank and how we can all use it to build our communities, engage with our neighbors, expand our networks, and even save some money. See and share our event on Facebook.

In addition to our speaker, we will also set dates and make plans for canvassing our precinct.
