Alli Smale, of KenCrest, encouraged people at last week’s Lawncrest Community Association meeting to enroll in the Good Neighbors Time Bank.

The project is supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council.

Regional time banks are in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Berks counties.

As an example, Smale said she might cook a meal for someone to earn time dollars. She might spend her time dollars, for instance, by asking someone to give her a ride to the airport.

Annual membership fees are $25 for individuals, $50 for families and $75 and up for organizations.

Smale can be reached at 610-633-0104 or asmale@kencrest.org
