A small
non-profit with
big impact

Welcome to the Cochrane Activettes, a pillar of hope and support in the Cochrane community. Chartered in May 1978, we are a not-for-profit society driven by a simple yet powerful mission: to extend a helping hand to those in need.

At the heart of the Cochrane Activettes are our members – a group of dynamic and dedicated women. United by a shared vision, we actively engage in charitable, welfare, and civic activities. Our goal? To transform Cochrane and its district into a thriving community where everyone can flourish.

Together, let’s continue to make Cochrane a place we’re proud to call home!

Touching Lives, One Project at a Time

The Cochrane Food Bank

Spearheading our major service projects, we manage and operate the Cochrane Food Bank. Our efforts here are focused on providing essential food supplies to families and individuals facing hard times.

Share Your Christmas

 Spreading festive cheer, we assemble and distribute Christmas hampers, ensuring that the joy of the season reaches every corner of our community. 

The Clothesline

More than just a used clothing store, The Clothesline is a symbol of sustainable living and community spirit. Located on Centre Avenue, it thrives through the generous donations by community members.

Engaging with the Community

We believe in the power of community. That’s why we’re actively involved in various local events, including hosting Santa at the Light-Up festival. You can learn more about our participation in these events on our Cochrane Activettes Events page.
