Hosted by The 705 Recovery Centre in Barrie, The 24hr Window is a unique fundraising event that will help the centre keep its doors open and continue providing its life-changing services
The 705 Recovery Community Centre is a non-profit organization located at 56 Dunlop St W in Barrie, ON 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.
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.
“This event highlights the isolation factor involved in addiction. Public health protocols force people suffering from 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.
