Cochrane Activettes

Get Involved

The Cochrane Activettes was chartered in May 1978 and is a “Not for Profit” Society dedicated to helping those less fortunate in the Cochrane area.

Our main service projects are running the Cochrane Food Bank and providing Christmas hampers through our annual Share Your Christmas program. We are the owners and operators of “The Clothesline”, a lightly used clothing store located on Centre Avenue. Other services include hosting Santa at Light-Up, helping with blood donor clinics, delivering meals and volunteering at many other community events.

All of this is possible through the generous donation of time by our many community volunteers.

Activities will be available for sign up after you are registered in Better Impact, our volunteer scheduling app.
