Thirteen years ago, Haley Whatley was a 5-year-old with a heart made for Easter. She started a Bunny Drive to benefit sick patients at the local children’s hospital. Every year since then Whatley collected plush bunnies and teddy bears for the kids. This year she broke her own record, collecting 3,767 stuffed animals.
This is her last year in Texas and the last year for her Bunny Drive, as she heads off to college in North Carolina in the fall. She exits a “Hometown Hero” having donated 28,772 cuddly toys.
