  • KENT, Ohio -- There aren't too many places you can go where an hour of your talent can be traded for an hour of someone else's. The Kent Community TimeBank is one of those places.

    At the Kent Community TimeBank, workers from all industries are able to network with each other and even trade services hour by hour.

    For instance, if you are good at sewing and someone at the TimeBank is good at cooking, you can sew a dress for them while they cater an event for you.

    TimeBanking provides an equality of time, so your hour is the same as anyone else's hour.

    It doesn't cost either side anything but time!

    The Kent Community TimeBank has been in existence for about a year.

    TimeBanking allows people to build relationships which builds the community. They work together to help each other.
