I hope I like the journey from the CP General Yard Office in Scarborough across to Lambton Yard.
CP is collecting food to give the food to local food banks.
I will be collecting food for people who can't afford to buy food. I hope my food gets donated and I hope people get a good meal.
That's why I like donating for the holiday train.
Each and every year since I was 2 or 3 we've collected food up and down our street, but this is the first time we've ever been on the holiday train. We send flyers up and down our street and ask for donations. So this year we are going to bring all the food we collected up and down our street to the holiday train to donate.
I think donating food is a great way to give people who have literally nothing more food.
I am very excited about donating food and I want to hear how much food they raise this time.
CP has been collecting food for 15 years now.
They've collected so much food and it's so big of a number I can't remember.
I looked it up and CP has collected 3.3 million pounds of food.
You can donate food and you will fill another person's bucket somewhere and they will be happy with a meal.
Here is a link to the book How Full Is Your Bucket: For Kids:
Once the sheets have been coloured, have kids use them to decorate boxes to be filled with donations to your food bank. It's a great activity to teach kids about the importance of giving before they attend the event. Here is the link to colouring pages:
I will tell you all about my ride after it's done and I will take lots of pictures.
