Taking care of our community

Community first

For us, giving back is core to our culture. We’re guided by our unwavering commitment to support the members of our community and strive to have a positive impact where we live and work.

The power of together

Never underestimate the power of community. By supporting one another, we keep our community thriving. Columbia Mall, together with its tenants, contractors, and vendors, employ nearly 2,000 people from our community. The center also provides support to our schools, local municipalities, county, and state through combined payroll, sales, utility and real estate tax contributions annually of nearly $26.6M.

Local love

We’re more than a shopping center to our locals, we are the heartbeat of our hometown. Our local neighborhoods have been, and will continue to be, our focus. Here's what we’re doing to help our community.

  • Hosting local blood drives in support of the American Red Cross and in partnership with local first responders
  • Hosting a pop-up food drive, distributing fresh food to local families in need
  • Hosting Fire Safety Week in partnership with The Fire Department, Columbia Police Department, The American Red Cross and Safe Kids for the fifth consecutive year
