TimeBanking Program Shares Skills, Creates Bonds in Royal Oak

The Royal Oak City Commission voted to support the Royal Oak and Huntington Woods TimeBank at its Monday meeting.

Do you know how cultivate a backyard garden? Replace a flat tire? Speak a different language?

If so, you're flush with what time bankers like to call "community currency."

TimeBanking is a reciprocal service through which participants earn currency for donating their skills and time. In time banking, dog-sitting, for example, earns time currency, which is logged online and and be cashed in for a basic computer lesson, help filing taxes or whatever other service a fellow member is able to provide. 

On Monday, the Royal Oak City Commission voted to recognize and support the Royal Oak and Huntington Woods TimeBank, one of twenty-three TimeBanks in Michigan. It currently has approximately 75 members and is growing. 

The City of Royal Oak website now has a link to the Royal Oak Huntington Woods Time Bank on its Community Links page.
