Training for giving

Kettle Valley Steam Railway delivers donation

The Kettle Valley Steam Railway Christmas trains are some of the most popular events of the season and this year, more than 2,200 made the trip.

That turned into a post-Christmas windfall for the Summerland Food Bank, as the railway also encouraged passengers to bring along a donation to help the less fortunate.

All told, that added up to more than 600 pounds of non-perishable foodstuffs along with some cash donations from the passengers.

For your consideration, attached please find a photo of our Business Manager, Tasandra Crozier delivering over 600 pounds of non-perishable foodstuffs, which was collected from donations made by passengers of the Kettle Valley Steam Railway during our Christmas Trains, to the Summerland Food Bank.
