In 2012, Time Dollar served over 7,947 Westside and Bexar County residents with a budget of about $35,000 that equates to $4.40 per guest. Thanks to our supporters, other community-minded donors, and volunteers, Time Dollar was able to provide basic needs and life changing services to all who expressed a need.
Life changing programs include Parent Child Math, one-on-one math education for underserved parents mutually benefiting parents and children, Summer Children’s Gardening Classes that ignites creative learning and thinking, and Square Foot Gardening and Sustainable Living Classes for adults.
