All Aboard Kearney’s Polar Express!

Union Pacific Foundation proudly donated to The Polar Express, a fundraiser for the Kearney Nebraska Public Schools foundation.
The delightful children’s movie was recreated for children who hopped aboard the Polar Express trolley at UP’s North Pole Express depot for a trip to Yanney Heritage Park for an evening of holiday surprises.
More than 2,560 area residents got in on the fun, raising more than $12,000 for KPS Foundation, which encourages excellence in education by providing resources to and recognition of the students and staff of Kearney Public Schools.
