And for a differing view...the largest public works project since the federal highway system...and they aren't sure why elementary kids improved but high schoolers didn't.

Why would anyone want to actually investigate something by checking facts? It is so much easier to just press "share" or "forward" and keep spreading those rumors and lies. Or for some of the "trolls" - more fun to just say outrageous things to get a reaction.

Chaddock in Quincy will be receiving many gifts from those who are filled with the spirit of Santa Claus. 

The Santa Express is making its way across Illinois, picking up donated toys and gifts. 

For more than 15 years, churches across Central Illinois have served as drop-off locations for Christmas gifts. 

The Santa Express picks up those toys and brings them to the children of Chaddock. 

Nearly 200 children who are either served through Chaddock's Foster and Adoption Services or are living on campus will receive a gift this Christmas. 

Donations range from bicycles to books, board games to Barbie dolls and even handcrafted gifts. 

Associate Director of Stewardship at Chaddock Jeff Rasche says the program helps change children's perceptions. 

"These are children who, in the first part of their lives, experience severe trauma, abuse, neglect from adults, now there are adults out there who even though they don't know me at all, they still care and provide me a gift."

Rasche adds Express Santa brings out the true reason for the Christmas season noting "There are many people that give to this tat say it's one of the most meaningful parts of Christmas for them.
