Canadian Pacific Holiday Train Will be In Sturtevant on December 5th

holiday trainThe Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train is back for its 18th year in an effort to raise money, food and awareness for local food banks and food shelves.

As in years past, two trains will operate coast-to-coast under the Holiday Train banner, with approximately 150 shows held across Canada and the U.S. in November and December. The train that operates primarily through the U.S. will launch in the Montreal area on November 25 then head into the U.S. Northeast, Midwest and Great Plains before completing its final shows in Saskatchewan on December 15.

“For nearly 20 years, CP has watched communities turn out to enjoy a wonderful event while taking a stand against hunger,” said E. Hunter Harrison, CP’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud of the role the Holiday Train plays, but more importantly, we’re proud of the people and families that come out year after year to help their neighbours. They’re the reason we keep bringing the train back.”

“We are very excited about this year’s CP Holiday Train and are encouraging all event attendees to bring healthy, nutritious food items to the shows,” said Pam Jolliffe, Interim Executive Director, Food Banks Canada. “For the last two decades, CP has played an integral role in raising essential food for the holidays and in raising awareness of hunger-related issues.”

Every pound of food and dollar raised at each stop stays with the local food bank to help feed those in need in that community. Here are the dates for the Wisconsin Stops with arriving and departure times
