The Equal Dollars are then exchanged for goods and services made available by community members and outside donations. As Director, Deneene oversees the day-to-day operations of the program, including redistribution of over $1,000,000 in retail value of donated goods and services to the 1200 plus members who have traded community-service hours to improve their community in various capacities.

The Equal Dollars System operates a Community Food Market, the Treasure Chest Thrift Boutique, a Business to Business Exchange, and the Equal Dollars Urban Farm.
