On April 14th, Cornhusker Bank will be celebrating One Day Without Shoes. Cornhusker Bank and various businesses and organizations throughout town will have People’s City Mission collection barrels in place, with over 90 locations serving as collection sites throughout the area. New, used, and even unwearable shoes may be donated between April 6th and April 17th by dropping them in any of these barrels.
On Tuesday, April 14th the bank will host a walk from 1101 Cornhusker Highway to the People’s City Mission, starting at 11:00 a.m. A free light lunch will be served at the Cornhusker Highway bank location for those attending the event. The walk helps raise awareness of the need for footwear in our own community and the entire community is invited to participate, regardless of whether or not they can donate. Cornhusker Bank staff members will go shoeless at work on the 14th to help raise awareness as well.
In the first four years of this event, Cornhusker Bank collected over 30,000 pair of shoes and over $33,000 in cash donations for the benefit of the Mission.
