Barrie Families Unite and Glowing Hearts Charity Free Winter Outerwear Pop Up Shop, 2020


Today, December 8, 2020, marks the third anniversary of one of the saddest days of my (John) life. It was this day in 2017 that my good friend Frank Nelson was taken from us after having fought cancer for six years for the sole purpose of being able to continue helping those in need.

This video, featuring the Barrie Family Unite and Glowing Hearts Charity Free Winter Outerwear Pop Up Shop, is a testament to Frank's intent and goals. Although not everything went to his plan, we feel Frank would be smiling down on this union of two great community groups that came together to help those in need.

We would like to thank the following sponsors of the City of Barrie Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a locally-focused truly local voice to you and your neighbours. They also enable our crew to be able to continue providing donated services to promote local benevolent community groups and charities based in The City of Barrie, the Town of Innisfil, and the Township of Oro-Medonte.
