Thanks to all for your generous donations to our

Share your Christmas program!!!


 We will not need any further gift donations at this time and unfortunately do not have storage to save any items for next year. We will always accept food donations at all Cochrane food store locations or at the Food Bank on Wednesdays and Thursdays or by appointment.  


The Activettes involvement for SYC came about in Dec 1981 when Mount View Health Unit asked us to help a single mom and her 3 year old daughter. In Nov 1982, The Activettes took over the SYC program from this same Health Unit and boxed up 28 food hampers and had Santa deliver them to the families. Fast forward to 2016 and we had 209 families that we helped out this year. Every year this event gets bigger and bigger and with the involvement of the Community of Cochrane, we were able to help these families with food, toys and gift cards.  Heartfelt thanks to all who volunteered or donated to this program đź’™  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year đź’™

“Bikes and trikes are provided each year to Cochrane Activettes and other family support organizations by a group of nine BP retirees called Wheels for Kids (WFK).  They volunteer their time most Fridays throughout the year to repair discarded bikes and trikes that are largely obtained from Shepard landfill or from families who no longer are in need of a bike or trike.  In December 2016, Cochrane Activettes received 65 bikes and trikes from WFK group.......” 


Thanks to the many businesses who collected for us!
