‘Santa’s Day Off’ first annual toy drive a success

    No child in Chase County will go without a Christmas present this year.
    At least that’s the hope of Sue Moore and Eric Haider.
    The pair joined forces to start an annual toy drive.
    Haider is the administrator at the Imperial Manor/Parkview Heights.
    “(The toy drive) was a huge success,” Haider said. “I was  very pleased with the generosity of the community.”
    Over 170 brand-new toys were dropped off last week at the Heights.
    “There were some really nice presents,” Moore said.
    Moore and Haider hope to make the toy drive, called “Santa’s Day Off,” an annual event.
    The presents will go to any child in need in Chase County.
