Trunk-or-Treat & Food Drive – We Need Your Trunk!

Pinckney Neighborhood Association is excited to announce the 3rd annual Trunk-or-Treat & Food Drive on October 26, 2013. This event is a wonderful opportunity for our large, multicultural, socioeconomically diverse neighborhood to gather together in support of building strong neighborhood and community ties. We take pride in pairing all our neighborhood gatherings with a public service event. Our Trunk-or-Treat has always been paired with a Food Drive to collect donations (food and funds) on behalf of Just Foods Douglas County ( We have collected over 100 pounds of food each of the previous two years. We hope to at least double our contributions this year.

We are seeking families, groups, clubs, organizations, businesses and students to help with this year’s event by setting up a trunk, booth, game or activity. Our goal is to have 20 entries in order to boost community participation, thus furthering the goals of engagement between neighbors and contributions to Just Foods. All students assisting with the Trunk-or-Treat will receive a Certificate of Community Service. All participating groups, organizations, businesses, etc., will receive special mention on the PNA website and in our next quarterly newsletter.

If you would like to participate in this event, support our efforts, or have any questions, please send an email to or call Pat Miller at 785-550-6958

Here’s what participating in the Trunk-or-Treat would entail:

  • Set-up starts at 3 pm in the Lawrence Memorial Hospital parking lot (4th Street between Michigan & Arkansas – enter via Arkansas)
  • The event is open for guests from 4 to 6 pm
  • Decorate the trunk of your car, truck or van, or even a table, booth or tent
  • Find great decorating ideas by doing an internet search for “trunk or treat”
  • You can also have a game or activity for the kids to play
  • Wear a costume (optional – but so much fun!)
  • Hand out treats or prizes (PNA can help supplement your supply)
  • Compete for best costume, best decorations, and best game/activity

If you aren’t able to provide a “trunk” but would still like to contribute, please consider providing some treats or prizes to hand out to the kids and donations for Just Food.
