‘The 24hr Window’ a Raise-a-thon for Recovery

‘The 24hr Window’ a Raise-a-thon for Recovery

The 705 Recovery Community Centre in downtown Barrie has been providing abstinence-based programming as a solution to addiction for over 200 people per week but is on the verge of closing the doors.

The 705 Recovery Community Centre is a non-profit organization located at 56 Dunlop St W that supports abstinence-based recovery* programs as a solution option to addiction and alcoholism. It offers a space for 12 step meetings of all kinds, counselling and therapy as well as events, education, training and support.

Executive Director Bill Zane says “We opened the center during the pandemic. Every place that held 12 step meetings was closed because of public health measures. Addicts and alcoholics need meetings and fellowship to survive.”

On May 8th , 2021 The 705 Recovery Community Centre will host a fundraising event called ‘The 24hr Window: a raise-a-thon for recovery’. Four people will spend 24 hours in the four windows of The 705 Recovery Community Centre storefront at 56 Dunlop St W. The event will raise awareness and funds to help keep the doors open.


“This event highlights the isolation factor involved in addiction. Public health protocols force people suffering with addiction into isolation. That’s a bad place to be. Overdose deaths are at all time highs across Canada. The 705 Recovery Community Centre needs to stay open, or people will die.” says Public Relations and Fundraising Manager Christine Gordon.

Jorden Mathias of Barrie’s Live Music Show and a participant of the event says “The 705 has been a life saver. Yeah, there’s Zoom and online meetings which help, but we need in person meetings to connect with each other. The 705 offers that for like-minded people.”

More information on the 24hr Window a Raise-a-thon for Recovery as well as a list of all meetings and events can be found at www.the705barrie.com.

Barrie Live Music Show – Supports the Food Bank

Jake and Jorden Mathias are the brothers behind the popular “Barrie Live Music Show” Facebook group that has raised over $100,000.00 for over 25 local charities.

Barrie Live Music & Bring Your Eh Game Raise Funds For…

Jake Mathias, creator of Barrie’s Live Music Show and brother Jorden have raised over $100,000.00 for local charities with March 28th marking their 1st year anniversary.

What a Great Platform!

Providing a wonderful platform for musicians to share their passionate talent virtually, we have been able to stay connected to our favorite local artists!

Teaming Up With:

Coming full circle this past year, they have teamed up with Dawn Mucci of Canada’s Top Mayor Award and Food Bank Canada for the entire month of April!

Canada’s Top Mayor Award, founded by Dawn has been a wonderful supporter of the Canada Food Bank Covid-19 Food Relief initiative through the Bring your ‘Eh Game series!

With many very exciting special guests joining Barrie Live Music this month it’s a great show and a great cause to support!

Sponsored By:

Sponsored throughout by Rock 95 and many more –  Barrie Uncovered has also stepped up on behalf of the cause.

Just under $2000.00 from the beginning of April – they are well on the way to a record month of donations!

And Special Thanks To...

Jumping in with a huge assist is Danny Mucci of Mucci Farms, Kingsville, Ontario, with a truckload donation of fresh produce to our local Barrie Food Bank.

Danny tells us, “At Mucci Farms, giving back to the community is a high priority.  After the year we’ve all had, it’s more important than ever to raise awareness and place an emphasis on building immune systems by increasing consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.  We also realize that healthy eating options aren’t necessarily available to everyone so we are proud to support a variety of initiatives and organizations to make it possible.”

Helping So Many...

Sharon Palmer, the newly appointed Executive Director of the Barrie Food Bank, is thrilled at the support of the local community.

“More and more families in our city are relying on the Food Bank to cover dietary needs and supplement their groceries since the beginning of Covid.”

We couldn’t be happier at the platform created for the artists we so have so dearly missed this past year!

It was so much fun getting everyone together via Zoom to discuss what we could do and introduce everyone!  Watch the video for that discussion!
