Make Christmas Magical
Join the Santa Express and help spread holiday cheer! Did you know that Chaddock provides Christmas gifts to more than 400 children and families in our residential, educational and foster care programs? It's a significant effort made possible by the support of donors, church communities and supporters like you! If you wish to contribute and help make Christmas magical for our kids, here are a few ways you can help.
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 received will be stored to provide for them throughout the year.
For questions about Santa Express, please contact Shawna Bunnell at (217) 592-0330 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
