Our 3rd Annual Back to School Giveaway on August 24th was a huge success.

We had plenty of volunteers and over 800 people passed through the doors of Cochrane Collegiate Academy to receive free shoes, socks, backpacks of school supplies, T-shirts, dental care products and

free books.

We wish to thank everyone who played a part in making the day so wonderful.
