One day in 2007, I was walking through the Phoenixville Farmer's Market and discovered Phoenixville had its very own time bank! Hurray! I signed up immediately and have been an active member ever since. I am immensely happy with the response to my request to 'eat your leftovers.' I don't cook for myself, and dinner was often a bowl of cereal. I decided to ask if anyone had homecooked leftovers to share (reimbursing for the cost of food, of course). Carla gave me the gift of her great cooking and I have eaten many a nutritious, hot, and delicious dinner ever since. An exchange that brought great joy was a request by a new mom of triplets to help with newborn feedings. Not yet a mom myself, I learned the ropes along the way and treasured the experience of caring for new babies. In the end, I've received the greater gift, as I have wonderful new friends.” - Laura Koetter @ Phoenixville Area Time Bank, Pennsylvania http://ow.ly/tN7U30a2MNC . #timebankingis #community #50storiesin50days #timebanks #story #timeasmoney #leftovers</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A post shared by TimeBanks USA (@timebanksusa) on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2017-03-20T15:54:24+00:00">Mar 20, 2017 at 8:54am PDT</time></p></div></blockquote><!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --><script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>
