Operation Easter Bunny

American Legion Newport Harbor Post 291 and Auxiliary Unit 291 - Newport Beach, CA

Officers and volunteers from the 29th District Legion Family hosted Operation Easter Bunny for our OEF and OIF Veterans and their families on Saturday, April 7, 2012. More than 80 children and their parents confirmed their attendance with Voluntary Services at the Long Beach VA Hospital. Over 2,000 items were available for the families to choose from, which included clothing, shoes, books, games, DVDs, and stuffed animals. An array of crafts, games and songs filled Patriot Park at the Long Beach VA. Little faces having been painted were told that Peter Cottontail would arrive following lunch. It must have seemed like an eternity, but Mr. Cottontail did arrive shortly after lunch with candy and Easter baskets for all.
