Easter Bunny visits Phoebe Putney

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some kids spending their Easter in the hospital received a special guest. Several Dougherty County police officers and the Easter Bunny visited Phoebe Putney Sunday morning.

Officers handed out bunnies to kids in the pediatrics and NICU units. Police say the opportunity to brighten a kid's day makes it worth it.

"They're very excited. Of course they're happy to see the bunny and we're giving out bunnies that were donated to us by the Easter Bunny foundation and we just want to come out every year and make sure we can help the kids and make them smile," said Detective Tamiko Whitlock with DCP.

This is the 9th year that DCP has visited Phoebe. Detective Whitlock said you can help by donating to the Easter Bunny Foundation.
