VIDEO: Missionites find creative, COVID-19-safe ways to hand out treats on Halloween

Candy delivered by chutes, slides and buckets to keep distance during festivities

While not every Mission house was handing out candy on Halloween this year, many were finding creative ways to safely deliver sweets to trick-or-treaters during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The candies were delivered by elaborate chutes, slides and buckets, and many houses had hand sanitizer stations set up while groups of treaters waited their turn to approach the candy-catching position.
