The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train will roll into Finch Wednesday, November 28 at 2:30 p.m. as part of its 20th annual journey that entertains while collecting funds and food for food banks.
Terri Clark, Kelly Prescott and Sierra Noble will entertain during the stop in Finch before the train departs at 3:15 p.m. for Merrickville.
Since 1999, the CP Holiday Train program has raised more than $14.5 million and gathered 4.3 million pounds of food for communities along CP's routes in Canada and the United States. Every pound and dollar raised at each stop stay with the local food bank to help feed those in need in that community.
CP is also encouraging fans of the train to donate heart-healthy food, as everyone should have access to healthy, nutritious food, regardless of circumstances. This supports the mission of CP Has Heart, a program dedicated to improving the heart health of men, women and children in North America. To date, this program has raised over $15 million for cardiac care and research.
