MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The COVID-19 Pandemic may have stopped some trick-or-treating this year. But, Northern Michigan University students are doing all they can to make up for some of that in a special way.

On Saturday, student organizations and Greek life will decorate their cars and hand out candy to trick-or-treaters in drive-thru fashion. It will be in Lot 60 outside the school’s Physical Education Instructional Facility.

The Special Event Coordinator, Anna Watson, says it was only fitting to give kids a safe and healthy Halloween.

“With all the rising (case) numbers," Watson said, "some houses aren’t passing out candy, and kids might not be able to go trick-or-treating in their neighborhoods. So, we want to make sure they had some sort of experience for Halloween.”

Trunk-or-treating runs from 4:00 to 6:00 on Halloween, Saturday.

Masks and other face coverings are required.

There will also be a food pantry car for people to donate any food items.
