A mid-state business made Halloween less stressful for kids with special needs.

Trick or treating is exciting for most children but some kids can find it to be a stressful experience.

Cummins Business Services held its 11th annual "Kiddie Parade" Thursday morning.

A total of 50 special needs students from McGavock High School joined employees' families in collecting candy from Alice in Wonderland, Ghostbusters and Moana.

Cummins said it started as a way to get employees families together, but decided to reach out to McGavock about three years ago after seeing the building's wheelchair accessibility.
