Trunk or Treat

Columbia School District is hosting a Trunk or Treat for the children of the community. Columbia area families will come together to enjoy this event.

School groups, businesses, and other organizations are invited to participate by hosting a trunk. There is no cost for sponsoring a trunk. We ask that you provide your own candy; we are estimating approximately 2,000 children.

The goal is to have 40 or more trunks for the event. Please contact Monika Cook at or at 592-6641 if your organization would like to participate.

Let's make this a great community event!
