Feeding the Needy: The Holiday Train Goes Viral

This year, the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is coming to you via Facebook rather than physically stopping in Cambridge and Ayr, to entertain you and raise money and food donations for area food banks.

The 2020 Holiday Train will be pulling in to a connected device near you at 6pm on Saturday, December 12th with this year’s musical guests Serena Ryder, The Trews, JoJo Mason, Logan Staats and Kelly Prescott.

“For more than two decades, the CP family has supported Canadians in need through the CP Holiday Train program,” said CP President and CEO Keith Creel. “In a year full of challenge and loss, we will host this concert as a call to action for the train’s supporters to donate generously if they can this Christmas season. The spirit of the Holiday Train will come alive even though the train itself will not operate due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

CP will donate $1.24 million this year to 201 food banks in communities that ordinarily host CP Holiday Train events, bringing the total amount of money raised at CP Holiday Train stops to $19.05 million since the train’s inception in 1999. Food banks have also collected 4.8 million pounds of food donations at local Holiday Train events.

Please join the online Holiday Train to celebrate the holidays by listening to great music and donating to help food banks locally and across Canada.
