Cornhusker Bank’s One Day Without Shoes event for the benefit of the People’s City Mission has been a yearly event for the past eight years. The Bank invites businesses and organizations throughout Lincoln to participate by being collection sites for shoes, and/or walking with bank staff to help raise awareness of the need for footwear in our community. Records were broken this year, 2018, with over 36,613 pairs of shoes collected city-wide, over $8,800.00 in monetary funds donated and over 200 walkers.
Why does Cornhusker Bank believe in the One Day without Shoes event? The event is such a galvanizing event for local businesses, bank associates and for the clientele of the People’s City Mission. It takes only observing one adult getting what they describe as the “best pair of shoes in their whole life” or one little girl thrilled with that perfect pair of pink shoes that compels the bank to continue organizing the event. The event and cause provides a valuable service to our community. Cornhusker Bank loves Lincoln and wants to help make it the best it can be. It gives us a chance to open up that cause for participation by mutually like-minded businesses, schools, and other organizations and it allows our staff to interact with the public stopping by to donate shoes and display and experience the Cornhusker Bank culture of “Doing Life Together.”
Cornhusker Bank asks you to start considering participation to be a shoe collection site or to plan to join in the walk from the Cornhusker Bank Center to the People’s City Mission in April of 2019.
