Build A Basket! For Our Pasta Party Auction
This year the Auction Committee is launching a new effort to include all Time Bank members in our annual Auction.
We are creating themed baskets made up of individual items donated by Time Bank members.
You may contribute as many items as you wish and earn one Time Dollar for each item. If each Time Bank member donated one item, we would have nearly 200 items to package into baskets!
Use this form to indicate what item(s) you would like to contribute, or simply drop off your item(s) at the Time Bank table this First Friday in Phoenixville.
You may also drop of your item(s) at our table at the Phoenixville Farmers Market any Saturday in August.
Email Kathy Vaci to drop off your item(s) to her home or to arrange pick up. Or call Kathy at: (440) 796-1377.
We need your items by Wed Aug 21. Please help out!

A Few Guidelines for Basket Items
- New items only. We cannot accept used items. The exception would be antique or collectible (cooking, gardening, woodworking) tools that are functional as well as displayable.
- No perishable items.
