SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA) — The Easter Bunny and the Benton County Sheriff’s Office made a special stop at Arkansas Children’s Northwest to help brighten the kids’ day.
The children were visited by the Easter Bunny, who handed them stuffed Easter Bunnies as a part of the second annual Bunny Hop with a Cop.
Sgt. Shannon Jenkins with the sheriff’s office said that being able to do this at Arkansas Children’s Northwest allows them to reach more kids and their families.
“We love this because this is an opportunity for us to spend time with kids who are in hospitals and cannot get out there and do all the fun Easter egg hunting at the churches and in the different cities and with their friends and everything,” Jenkins said. “So we get to put a smile on their face during a time where it’s not so fun for them.”
After the Easter Bunny and the sheriff’s office got done visiting the hospital, they made an appearance at the Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter.
