If you haven’t joined MMTB yet, here is yet another reason to do so – MMTB members are now able to access/join Hour Exchange Portland.
Hour Exchange Portland (“HEP”;), like MMTB, is a community-led service exchange (time bank) that is based in Portland, Maine. It is a very large and active exchange, in terms of both the number of members (and therefore the number of offers and requests for services) and the broad range of services. According to HEP’s website, in its several years of existence HEP’s members have exchanged over 150,000 hours of service. Services currently offered include everything from bike repairs/tune-ups to pet care; from weatherization to massage therapy; from lessons in photography or music to offers of lodging and accommodations; from legal services to health care services. In fact, according to its website, HEP members have provided over 25,000 hours of free health care since its inception, and in 2010, its members were able to weatherize nearly 100 homes!
Although HEP normally has geographic restrictions, those have been waived for MMTB members. (MMTB has joined HEP, and HEP has joined MMTB.) So join MMTB now!
