BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Some local organizations are working together to make Halloween safe for the community.

Outside Mount Zion Community Sanctuary in Buffalo, kids can get their trick-or-treat candy while staying socially distant, Friday night.

Some local churches and peace groups are setting up tables and passing out bags of candy and toys and kids masks.

Pastor James Giles says the point of this is to keep the Halloween fun, but do it safely.

"They come in and pick up a treat and do it safely and then go back home safely. They don't have to travel the streets and without mom worrying about what's coming out of this house, and what's coming out of that house," said Pastor Giles.

That event runs from 5 to 9 p.m. at the corner of Bissell and Genesee.
