Welcome Aboard the Santa Express
Santa Express is Chaddock’s annual effort to provide Christmas to the over 400 children and families we serve through our residential, educational, and foster care programs. It is a wonderful and massive undertaking, and would not be possible without the help of our supporters.
There are many ways you can help “Make Christmas Happen” for our kids.
Options for Giving
‘Adopt’ a Child/Children
You are matched with a child (or children). We send you their names and wish lists. You shop for the gifts and take them to your nearest church drop-off site by December 1st for pick up. Gifts can also be sent or delivered directly to Chaddock.

There are a few things we will need to ensure this process goes smoothly
Please send all gifts to:
205 S 24th St
Quincy, IL 62301
Select “this is a gift” option on the website.
Tell us which child the gifts are for by including your child’s name on the card option or order forms.
Send gift cards or monetary donations to Chaddock, specified for Santa Express. If you choose this option, we will do the shopping for you! Please keep in mind the average cost for gifts per child is $200.00.
Provide General Gifts
General gifts chosen from our Christmas Wish List can be dropped off at your nearest church drop-off site by December 1st for pick up, or be delivered directly to Shawna at Chaddock. Gifts purchased online can likewise be shipped to Shawna.
No child should feel lost or forgotten at Christmas, or at any other time of the year. Together, we can make sure it doesn't happen.
Your participation in Santa Express will bring many smiles on Christmas morning and demonstrate to our kids that they are loved and what they wish for matters! If all of our children are ‘adopted’ for Christmas, gifts will go to provide for them throughout the year. Please email Shawna Bunnell or call at 217-592-0330 with any questions or special requests.
Welcome Aboard Santa Express and thank you for ‘Making Christmas Happen’ for our kids!
