15th year of CP Holiday Train raises record $2 million in support of local food banks

The 2013 Canadian Pacific Holiday Train has officially wrapped up its journey across Canada and the United States raising record donations for North American food banks.

Donations for the 2013 three-week journey by two brightly-decorated freight trains to over 150 communities hit more than $2 million and 300,000 pounds of food.

“This was a record year for the Holiday Train and Canadian Pacific congratulates all those who rallied together in supporting communities in their fight against hunger," said E. Hunter Harrison, CP’s chief executive officer.

As part of what was raised during this year’s Holiday Train, the Breakfast Club of Canada and Feeding America each received $250,000 from CP in support of their national programs. The 2013 donation results now push totals since 1999 to close to $9.5 million and 3.3 million pounds.
