Helping Hands’ original program started in 2007. For many years, this twice yearly event in September and April was an excellent demonstration of true community spirit. These semi-annual Food Drives attracted more than 800 volunteers to collect and sort food donations that stock the Food Bank for Cochrane & Western Rocky View, which is operated by the Cochrane Activettes.
The year 2020 brought many changes including the usual operation of Helping Hands semi-annual Food Drives; forcing Helping Hands to adjust to many smaller community food drives throughout the year with gathering restrictions and pandemic protocols.
This popular community-wide event continues to adapt AND offers a great opportunity for families with children of all ages to participate!
To support Helping Hands, donations are being accepted on April 22nd. Donations should be unopened, non-perishable items. Please have donation items on your front porch by 10am in a recyclable box.
We look forward to seeing you there!
