The CP Holiday Train rolled through town today, May 14, – virtually – to raise money for Food Banks Canada.
CP Holiday Train at Home – Sharing the Spirit in the Spring was an online awareness concert for COVID-19 relief and was hosted by Alan Doyle and Kelly Prescott, who revisited magical moments of the train with former Holiday Train artists and reflected on the power of community giving.
The concert featured appearances by Alan Doyle, Odds, Kelly Prescott, Dallas Smith, JoJo Mason, Madeline Merlo, Meghan Patrick, The Trews, Willy Porter, Sam Roberts Band, Tanika Charles, Terri Clark, and The Jim Cuddy Band.
CP has donated $1 million to four North American charities providing critical supplies and relief in the COVID-19 battle.
The CP Holiday Train brings music and community spirit together at Christmas to raise money and collect healthy food donations for food banks in communities along CP’s network.
Since 1999, the program has helped raise more than $17.6 million and collected 4.7 million pounds of food.
