One Day Without Shoes: Cornhusker Bank Collects Shoes for People’s City Mission
For the 7th year running, Cornhusker Bank (www.CornhuskerBank.com) is gearing up for One Day Without Shoes to benefit the People’s City Mission. Cornhusker Bank partners with businesses and organizations throughout the community to collect shoes and/or monetary donations for the Mission from April 3rd through the 14th. New, used, adult and children’s shoes may be donated by dropping them off at any collection site listed on Cornhusker Bank’s website, www.CornhuskerBank.com.
On Tuesday, April 11, 2017 the bank hosts a walk from their 11th and Cornhusker Highway location to the People’s City Mission at 1st and Q Street, starting at 11:00 a.m. A free light lunch will be served that day for anyone participating in the walk or dropping off shoes from 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. Anyone who is interested in raising awareness of the need the Mission has for shoes is invited to participate, regardless of their ability to donate. Also, on April 11, bank associates go shoeless to help bring attention to the need for footwear.
In the first 6 years of the event, Cornhusker Bank and partners collected 67,882 pairs of shoes and over $50,000 in monetary donations. As Cornhusker Bank continues to grow with the bank’s new center at 8310 O Street, the bank has set a goal to increase awareness of the Mission’s need for shoes and increase shoe donations.
