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

The Activettes are a dedicated group of women whose objectives are to engage in charitable welfare and/or civic work in the community to make Cochrane and district a better place for all of us to live.

Our main service project is running the Cochrane Food Bank and providing Christmas hampers. We are the owners and operators of “The Clothesline”, a used clothing store located on Centre Avenue, which is run through the generous donation of time by many community volunteers.


Other services include hosting Santa at Light-Up and volunteering at many other community events (More on these events see our Cochrane Activettes Events page). We meet the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm.
