Now looking forward to its 13th annual run, KCS' Holiday Express is a six-car train that brings Santa Claus and his elves to communities throughout the U.S. network at scheduled stops. These events are free and open to the public. No tickets are required.
The Holiday Express also has a charitable component. At each scheduled stop, The KCS Charitable Fund makes a contribution of gift cards to the local Salvation Army to provide warm clothing and other necessities for children in need. Over the past 12 years, thanks to the generous contributions of KCS’ employees, vendors and friends, the Holiday Express has donated over $1.2 million in gift cards to this cause.
This year the Holiday Express will be at Union Station for 5 days and hopes to break a record 15,000 visitors! We would love ServeKC to sponsor a shift ON THE TRAIN! Responsibilities will be escorting guests through the train, passing out goody bags, and helping with strollers.
