What we're about

Phoenixville Area Time Bank, now in its ninth year, is part of a world-wide social-change movement that builds community through members sharing their skills and services in exchange for Time Dollars.

For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one Time Dollar. Then you have a Time Dollar to spend on having someone do something for you. It's that simple. Yet it also has profound effects. Time Banks change neighborhoods and whole communities.

Each Time Dollar represents an hour of service. Typical services include: rides to the airport, gardening, pet care, household construction, food exchanges, and computer help.

We are creating community by exchanging services from driving, gardening, hair cutting and pet care to lightening the load of moving day by taking turns schlepping boxes. Come meet the people you share enthusiasm with who are making a difference and having fun doing it.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

241 1st Ave

A special Father’s Day benefit for two local organizations: PXV Area Time Bank & Refugee Initiative at Forge Theatre: 241 First Ave, Phoenixville, PA Tickets available at [masked] – or online: www.patimebank.org/events-1/funny-thing-happened-on-way-to-the-forum Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted courtesan named Philia, for his young master Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two. Please help support two organizations working for social change in the Phoenixville Area.
