The Natick Police Department is making touchless trick-or-treat chutes available for free to residents thanks to a donation from a resident and the Maine medical equipment company he works for.
The chutes come courtesy of Natick’s Dave Gill and the company he works for, REOS Medical.
Natick’s Health Department has issued guidelines on having a safe Halloween, citing Centers for Disease Control protocols.
According to the police, the cardboard chutes are 3 inches in diameter and 6-feet long, and come decorated with glow-in-the-dark tape and are packaged with tongs for socially distanced candy distribution.
They will be available for pick up at the Natick Police Department on Friday. Anyone interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lt. Carla Rossi is also encouraging those you snag them to send photos of their decorated tubes at email@example.com to be entered to win a prize, possibly delivered via police car lit up and making noise.
Of course we’ve been prototyping our own fancy system since mid-September.
