CP Holiday Train Food Drive & Ticket Contest
Last year, the Golden Food Bank and the local CP Employees challenged the schools in the area to raise donations for the Food Bank. The class which raised the most donations were awarded 30 Holiday Train tickets which were generously donated by the local CP staff. This event proved to be a great success and a LOT of fun so we are doing it again this year!
Local classes have been collecting donations for the past week. On Friday, December 5th the donations will be collected and weighed by Santa himself and our cheery volunteers! The winning class will be awarded 30 tickets to ride the Holiday Train from Field to Golden on the morning of Sunday, December 14th.
If you would like to volunteer with us on Friday, December 5th you can contact us at (250) 344-2113 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
