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.

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.
