Canadian Pacific Holiday Train Rolls into Rochester
(ABC) --The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolled into Rochester.
The train, which supports Channel One Regional Food Bank, made the stop Friday afternoon.
Along with bringing holiday cheer, the train is raising food donations, money and awareness about hunger issues in the United States and Canada.
This year, Canadian Pacific gave Channel One $10,000 to help those in our area. That's enough to feed 500,000 people
"It comes to us at a wonderful time, people are thinking about how they can give back during the holidays, but unfortunately more people than ever are needing help," says Channel One Executive Director, Jennifer Woodford.
The holiday train is traveling to raise food donations in cities across the country for the next three weeks.
