Take the Plunge, 2022


Most people don't think about taking a jump in the lake in mid-March, but that is exactly what 32 people in Innisfil did on Saturday, March 19, 2022, to raise money for the Innisfil Food Bank and Innisfil's Christmas for Kids (all year round).

The event, Take The Plunge, was co-hosted by Friday Harbour Resort and the Innisfil Community Events Corporation, the latter of which has held the event in previous years.

The event is reported to have raised $2,930.00 and as one charity organizer told us, the exposure often inspires people to donate after the event, once they have seen something like our video online 😉

We would like to thank the following sponsors of the Ontario Community Awareness Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a not-for-profit 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.

Five Points Media has recently transitioned to become a provincially registered not-for-profit corporation. To the best of our knowledge, ours will be the only community channel of its kind.

We are looking for new programming ideas, with our focus being mostly on fringe and minority groups whose members are mostly ignored by mainstream media. These include, but are not limited to, the Indigenous population, People of Colour, members of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community, and people of various cultures and religions.

We will continue to donate all video and media services to registered charities and benevolent not-for-profit groups that promote unity and support all members of the community. Our eventual goal will be to expand our programming to cover all of Ontario through a network of regional bureau facilities. This service will help all people in Ontario to learn about each other and work in unity.
