<p><font size=2>Calgary, AB - Canadian Pacific is proud to announce that the 2012 Holiday Train program will be riding the rails to raise money and awareness about hunger issues in Canada and the US, one stop at a time. Again this year, the two trains will visit over 150 communities - beginning their journeys in Beaconsfield, QC, and Scranton, PA. The 2012 Holiday Train schedule is now available on cpr.ca and Facebook. </p>
<p>Since 1999, the Holiday Train program has raised close to C$6.4 million and about 2.6 million pounds of food for North American food banks. With families continuing to turn to food banks, the need is always present. Items such as infant formula, canned meats, and spaghetti sauce are in popular demand. Bring a non-perishable food item or money to your local event to support your local food bank. </p>
<p>Each Holiday Train has 14 brightly decorated rail cars, including a modified box car that has been turned into a traveling stage for performers. They are each decorated with hundreds of thousands of technology-leading LED Christmas lights. </p>
<p>For additional information, photos, a route map and downloadable pictures of the two trains visit: www.cpr.ca</font><b><font size=2 face="Tahoma,Tahoma"><font size=2 face="Tahoma,Tahoma">. </b></font></font><font size=2>Supporters can also join the Holiday Train on Facebook and follow the two trains on Twitter @CPHolidaytrain</font></p><font size=2>
