Easter Bunny will visit CDH Sunday

Thanks to DuPage County Sheriff John E. Zaruba the patients in the pediatric ward at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield will not be forgotten by the Easter Bunny this Sunday. In fact they will be getting a personal visit from the famous rabbit.  

Sheriff John Zaruba has teamed up with a Florida based non-profit organization, The Easter Bunny Inc., to make sure that the children who have to spend Easter in the hospital will have something to smile about.            

"Being hospitalized can be a very frightening experience for anyone," Sheriff Zaruba said. “But it is especially frightening if you’re a child. Hopefully a visit from the Easter Bunny this Sunday, and the gift of stuffed toy, will lift the spirits of these children and their families and put some fun in their day."   

The Easter Bunny, accompanied by a Deputy Sheriff and three DuPage County Sheriff’s Explorer Scouts, will arrive at the pediatric unit around 10:00 am Easter Sunday, April 20th to visit personally with each child. 

"Both the Sheriff's Office and Central DuPage Hospital are here to serve our community," Sheriff Zaruba continued. "I can think of no better way to do that than to spend Easter Sunday bringing smiles to the faces of sick children." 

GREAT PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
