HARTFORD, Conn. — For one little girl, Easter goodies were delivered to her by people wearing state trooper uniforms instead of a bunny costume this weekend.
State troopers from New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut all coordinated efforts to send Easter gifts to a girl who lost both her parents in separate incidents.
A video posted by Connecticut State Police showed troopers delivering the presents Saturday to Eyvie.
New Hampshire State Police coordinated the delivery of the gifts.

“New Hampshire State Troopers met Eyvie a few months ago when she tragically lost both of her parents in separate incidents,” a Facebook post from Connecticut State Police said. “The New Hampshire State Police weren’t able to make the trip to Connecticut, but they wanted to make sure a few special presents made their way to their friend Eyvie.”
Troopers from New Hampshire passed the gifts over to troopers from Massachusetts who then met with Connecticut troopers so the presents could be delivered.
“We are honored to have been given the opportunity to take part and meet Eyvie,” Connecticut State Police wrote. “She is an amazingly strong and resilient girl and we were honored she shared her bright smile with us this morning!”
