Welcome to the Silver Spring Timebank!

The Silver Spring Timebank is a community organization that offers its members both the chance to share their time and talents and to receive the benefits of others time and talents.

We believe that every person has talents, can contribute to building a better community and is entitled to an opportunity to give and get respect.

For us, equality is at the heart of all we do.  An hour is an hour, regardless of the service.  All people are valued equally.  All work is valued equally.

Our community embraces the idea that "sharing is caring".

Selected Exchange Stories

I attended the timebank's Kitchen Swap in April and found a set of napkins and placemats from World Market. I grabbed them, thinking they looked like the same size as my outdoor pillows which have faded from the sun. I put the Request on hOurworld to have someone re-cover my pillows with this new fabric. Connie answered my request. She sized them exactly, and they were much nicer than they would have been if I had done them myself. In fact, one of her friends saw them and tried to buy them from her! I'm so happy with my "new" pillows, and I love that I got to upcycle items from the Kitchen Swap.  -- Kathy J., 6/27/17
