CP Holiday Train December 2021 matching campaign.

2021 HolidaY Train at Home from https://www.cpr.ca/holiday-train/canada

Since its beginning in 1999, the brightly decorated CP Holiday Train has been
a highlight of the season for people living along the CP Rail line. CP’s
generous donations over the years have reached over twenty million dollars
and the train has enabled food banks along the route to collect nearly five
million pounds of food donations at local Holiday Train events.

This year, despite COVID, the annual #CPHolidayTrain is back…. And its first
and only stop is your home!

Although the train might look a bit different again this year, CP is keeping the
spirit of Christmas alive with a virtual concert to raise money for food banks
across North America. Traditionally CP has donated $4,000 to Community
Food Share as part of the train’s stop in Finch for several years. As well,
hundreds of pounds of food were collected.

This year Community Food Share is again hoping to be able to raise an
additional $4,000. through a matching campaign. We invite you to visit our
website www.communityfoodshare.ca/donate or Facebook
page www.facebook.com/CommunityFoodShareDS.

Please consider donating to support our efforts to provide healthy food to
those in our community who need a helping hand.

The show will be available to live-stream via Facebook facebook.com/canadian.pacific, YouTube and cpr.ca/holidaytrain. The concert will remain available there for future
viewing until the end of the year.

Headlining the concert this year will be Steven Page and The Strumbellas,
with featured performances by Tanika Charles, Keb Mo, The Trews,
Aysanabee, Sierra Noble and the Odds. Steven Page was the lead singer,
guitarist and primary songwriter for the acclaimed Barenaked Ladies and he
continues to record as a solo artist. The six-member Juno Award-winning
band, the Strombellas, rose to popularity five years ago when their single
Spirit became a radio hit across North America.

The CP “Holiday Train at Home” virtual concert will be held on Saturday,
December 18 at 8 p.m. ET and will last for approximately 1 hour and 15min.
