Community Connections is a Time Bank. Members exchange services with each other and earn time. One hour of service earns one time credit—all services are equal. When a member requests a service, they receive a list of members who are available. The member providing the service earns and the member receiving the service pays in time credits. No money is exchanged!

Calendar of Activities & Events

NPR story about Community Connections as reported by Ina Jaffe (Text version)

Story aired on NPR "All Things Considered", December 14th


To connect people, strengthen families and build communities through the exchange of services.

Happy Birthday to Community Connections! To truly appreciate where we are...we must remember how far we have come. It’s shocking to think there have been 32,700 exchanges totaling 94,770 hours of service in the past ten years, and yet, there are still many people and organizatons who have not heard of Community Connectons!
During our birthday party, we had a great video of many people who helped make Community Connections a great success. Take a moment to see the people and activities that are the driving force to volunteerism in Plumas County.


Everybody Matters

We all have skills and talents. The real wealth of a community is its people. Every person, regardless of age, income level, or education is valuable and has something to offer to others.

Giving is Receiving  

When everyone has an opportunity to serve and in turn can accept service from others, "you need me" becomes "we need each other."

Volunteers Make Communities Work  

Sharing in the responsibility of raising healthy children, strengthening families, supporting vital businesses and service organizations, and caring for our elders creates a connected community.

People Need People  

We are unique, but equal. Sometimes the greatest gift we can give others is to allow them to serve so they can feel needed and appreciated.
