NY mom and federal agents team up to plan beeping egg hunt
NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City mom is working to make an inclusive Easter egg hunt this year with help from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents.
Holly Bonner, of Staten Island, says she lost most of her eyesight five years ago and it has made annual holiday egg hunts difficult to do with her children. WCBS-TV reports she heard of a “beeping egg hunt” in Alabama, and asked her regional ATF office for help in bringing the concept to Staten Island.
A group of ATF agents have agreed to help out.
Special Agent Matthew Fleming says the two dozen eggs they’re making for the April 5 event use a simple circuit to emit a beeping sound so that the blind and visually impaired can participate.
