ODWS2019blog

This year marks the 9th annual Cornhusker Bank One Day Without Shoes event for the benefit of the People’s City Mission.  In the history of the event Cornhusker Bank and organizations throughout the community that have partnered in the collection efforts have gathered over 132,000 pairs of shoes and cash donations for the mission to buy new footwear of over $68,000.

Over 130 locations throughout the community are partnering with the bank for this year’s shoe campaign and will be serving as collection sites for new, used, adult, and children’s shoes from April 1 through April 12, 2019.  According to Barry Lockard, Cornhusker Bank President/CEO, “The One Day Without shoes event has been phenomenally successful in giving bank associates and the community at large the opportunity to have a shared purpose which helps enhance our community and helps improve well-being of lives of individuals within it.” 

New or used shoes of all sizes will be collected at participating businesses throughout the community, including all Cornhusker Bank locations from April 1, 2019 through April 12, 2019.   On Saturday, April 6th, Cornhusker Bank will also have a FREE shred day at the 8310 O Street location only.  This provides the community a terrific opportunity to dispose of their unwanted paper documents in a safe manner while they can also drop off any shoes they would like to donate.

Cornhusker Bank invites the community to join bank associates and representatives of businesses which are collecting shoes, as we host a press conference on Tuesday, April 9th, 2019 at 10:45 a.m. with the People’s City Mission at Cornhusker Bank Center, 8310 O Street in Lincoln.  The press conference will include information about the impact of the event on the Mission and the community.  Everyone is also invited to join the walk immediately following the press conference from the Bank to the Mission’s Help Center at 68th and P Street, to help raise awareness of the need for adequate footwear in our community.  A free lunch will also be served at the Cornhusker Bank Center from 11:00 am to 1 pm on April 9th.
