West Seattle Timebank

Timebank changes and opportunities

In light of Governor Inslee’s declaration last week restricting public gatherings, as well as our desire to keep our community safe and secure, The West Seattle Timebank has decided to cancel our monthly 3rd Thursday Member Gathering for March and will reassess holding the April Gathering when the time comes.

In the current crisis, we are reminded that the West Seattle Timebank isn’t just a monthly potluck gathering—we are a supportive community here to assist with your needs day in and day out--accessible to everyone where participants value personal contribution and a strong and resilient community.

By composing an Offer or Request and posting it for our community members to see and respond to, you can access skills and assistance. You never know what other neighbors may need or what skills they are willing to share. Please make good use of your Timebank community during this time of great uncertainty. It will not be easy, but let’s try to find a sense of our own community’s power by working through this challenge together.

If you can help someone please post an offer for members to see and respond to. Maybe it's:

  • "Want to talk on the phone? I'm here."
  • "Need something at the store? I'll pick it up?"
  • "Need a ride?"
  • "Not feeling well but know you don't have the virus and need some help cooking or cleaning?"
  • "Can I take the garbage out for you?"
  • "Here's a good time to learn that new computer program - we work together electronically"
  • "Can I bake a goodie or casserole for you and drop it off?"

You never know what other neighbors may need or what skills they are willing to share. Please make good use of your Timebank community during this time of great uncertainty. It will not be easy, but let’s try to find a sense of our own community’s power by working through this challenge together.

Being here for each other is what Timebanking is all about. Let's get posting offers!

If you need something, please respond to an offer, post your own request, or write to the board at WestSeattleTimebank@gmail.com.

We will share general updates as needed. Feel free to reach out to WestSeattleTimebank@gmail.com with your specific questions or concerns.

Your Friends in Time,
The West Seattle Timebank Board
