Sheriff Mike Hale will personally escort Peter Cottontail himself to Children's of Alabama in Birmingham tomorrow, Good Friday. The Easter Bunny will be handing out stuffed animals and visiting with children and a good time is guaranteed. The Sheriff and the bunny are scheduled to hippity hop into the hospital lobby promptly at 9:00 am to begin the fun.
The visit is part a program started by The Easter Bunny Foundation, which is a Non-Profit organization whose mission is to provide a personal visit and a toy from The Easter Bunny during the week of Easter to children in children's hospitals and pediatric wards across the United States. It's a effort endorsed by The National Sheriff's Association.
In 2013 The Easter Bunny made visits in 33 states, delivering smiles to 13,000 hospitalized children with the help of 92 Sheriff's Offices and 4 Police Departments across the nation.
