Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolls its way into Byron
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolls into Byron Saturday afternoon, returning to the rails for its 24th annual cross-continent trip.
The train travels in support of food banks and shelves in dozens of locations, including Byron, by raising money, meals and awareness on food insecurity issues.
Organizers say those who came out to see the train, could enjoy live music with the spirit of giving, by donating.
“We’re basically community supported, totally. And we’re just seeing a lot of love here today, with the giving from the community,” said the People Helping People Food Pantry Treasurer. “Of course, it all comes back to the community, we’re all volunteers, so everything we get here today comes back to the food.”
