The Cana­dian Pa­cific (CP) Hol­i­day Train will be rid­ing the rails through Moose Jaw on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6th and is sched­uled to ar­rive west of the CP Sta­tion at 4:15 p.m., with a brief stopover to fea­ture en­ter­tain­ers, Sierra No­ble, Terri Clark and Kelly Prescott. This is its 20th year to raise money and aware­ness about hunger across the na­tion and the US. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to come out to this an­nual fundraiser for our lo­cal food bank.

In co­or­di­na­tion with the CP Hol­i­day Train, the ninth an­nual “Good-Buy to Hunger” food drive will take place at the Moose Jaw CO-OP on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 4th for our lo­cal food bank. Any­one who makes a pur­chase at the Co-op of “Good-Buy to Hunger” bags for $10/bag be­fore 5:00 p.m. on De­cem­ber 4th will be en­tered into a draw for two tick­ets to ride the Hol­i­day Train from Regina to Moose Jaw.

In 2017, the to­tal weight from the Moose Jaw Food Drive and dona­tions dur­ing the show was over 5,000 lbs. of food that was col­lected for our lo­cal food bank. This year, Moose Jaw CO-OP is hop­ing for a sale of 800 bags for 2018. Please be gen­er­ous Moose Jaw; let’s fill those shelves!

For all con­tri­bu­tions, make cheques payable to Moose Jaw CO-OP. If you need some­one to pick up your cheque in ad­vance, please call 306.693.5422 and your name will be en­tered into the draw.

Since the on­set of this pro­gram that was launched in 1999, more than C$14.5 mil­lion and 4.3 mil­lion pounds of food has been col­lected for com­mu­ni­ties along CP routes in Canada and the US.
