Have you heard of the TimeBank?

Time Bank is a web-based tool that brings real life connection! We are proud to see the progress of new members and most importantly, the activities and tasks that are shared between neighbors. Here are a couple updates.

  • Over 100 hours of exchanges
  • Exchanges have included gardening, pet sitting, meal prep, wood stacking, and even just playing Tarabish!
  • Our membership has grown to over 60 members

Members log into the St. Ann’s Bay Time Bank website and in their profile, they list and describe the ways that they can be helpful to others in the community. Everyone has something to offer and all hours are equal, whether you are chopping wood, cleaning, reading a child a story or walking someone’s dog. Banked hours can be used on any service available. See more about how Time Bank works.

Anyone can join!

If you live in the St. Ann’s Bay area especially, we are available to help you make your profile and use this site.  Time Bank coordinator, Patsy LeBlanc will help you create an account, show you around the functions available to every user, and she will connect you to other members who have similar needs to what you offer.

Sign up by visiting the Time Bank website here. Look to the left of the page and click “Join” in green letters.
If you have any difficulty signing up, connecting with fellow members or using your Time Bank hours, email Patsy at stannsbay@community.timebanks.org
