Playhouse set to be delivered to Hunter Ellis Monday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The son of a fallen Bardstown police officer is expected to get quite a special delivery Monday.

In late February, Hunter Ellis, son of Jason Ellis, was gifted with a new playhouse at the Home, Garden and Remodeling Show at the Kentucky Expo Center.

It was courtesy of the efforts of the Building Industry Charitable Foundation, Kosair Charities and YouthBuild Louisville.

Hunter and the other recipient are both Kosair Kids. The playhouse, which is set to be delivered Monday, were custom-built from the ground up. It was truly a labor of love.

"Our young people put a lot of love and attention into them to make sure they're the best that they can build," YouthBuild Executive Director Lynn Rippy said.

Hunter's mom Amy expressed her gratitude at the gift, "I just want to thank everyone for the support and these wonderful charities that have chosen Hunter," she said.

The Ellis family lost their dad, Bardstown Officer Jason Ellis, in May 2013 when he was gunned down while on his way home.

No arrests have been made in the case.
