“Our 6 ‘candy chute is ready to be attached to the railing! Come, Halloween !!!” She wrote.
Halloween is one of Beattie’s favorite holidays. The horror film fanatic has an empty room dedicated to creepy adventures throughout the year.
They created a touch-free trick-or-treat experience to deliver candy safely. They hope that keeping the holiday tradition alive will create a sense of normalcy for children.
Beatty told CNN, “It’s the kind of thing kids would like and wouldn’t think that I’m doing this to stop the disease. They’re doing it.”
“We need this. We need community spirit right now.”
The chute took about 20 minutes to make household items, such as cardboard tubes, orange spray paint and black duct tape.
On Halloween night, he plans to wear a mask and gloves or use tongs to spill candy for trick-or-treaters waiting on the other side.
Beatty’s original post has been shared over 77,000 times on Facebook. He encourages those who try to give a “candy chute” in the coming horror season.
“It’s simple and anyone can do anything,” he said.
