Alexandria Sheriff’s Deputy Valarie Wright accompanied the Easter Bunny, portrayed by Winchester Sheriff Leonard Millholland, to Inova Alexandria Hospital on Wednesday, April 4, for the Office’s annual visit. Carrying a basket of stuffed bunnies adorned with hearts and the printed message “Some Bunny Loves Me”, Deputy Wright, the new Community Relations Deputy, and the Easter Bunny helped spread cheer to patients, staff and visitors alike.  The Alexandria Hospital bunny visit is a highlight for the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office, which began partnering with Sheriff Millholland in 2009 in this joint community service project sponsored by the Easter Bunny Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a personal visit and a toy from the Easter Bunny during the week of Easter to children in hospitals.
