Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train

Since 1999, the Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train has traveled across the United States and Canada entertaining communities and raising money and collecting donations for local food banks. The train will make its third stop in Golden Valley in 2018, with all proceeds benefiting PRISM.

The 1,000-foot Holiday Train will roll into Golden Valley Tuesday, Dec 11, at 4:50 pm, stopping at the railway crossing at Golden Hills Dr. Its 14 rail cars will be decorated with hundreds of thousands of LED lights and holiday designs.

Get there early and enjoy food and hot beverages from food trucks like Eastern Promises, Mobile Brats and Burgers, Sweet Dreams Candy, and The Wandering Mug.

Food Shelf Donations

Donations of healthy food options are encouraged (see CP's Healthy Donations suggestions). It's also a good idea to check with PRISM regarding its specific needs. Representatives onsite will collect both food and monetary donations. Every dollar and pound of food collected at this free event will stay in Golden Valley.

Holiday Toy Drive

Along with accepting food donations, PRISM will also be collecting new, unwrapped presents for their annual Holiday Toy Shoppe, to put a little magic into the holiday season for the 1000+ children they serve. Most desired gift options are sports attire, perfume, make-up, cologne, and more. It’s also a good idea to check with PRISM regarding its specific toy drive needs.
