On April 10th, Cornhusker Bank associates will go shoeless, to draw awareness to the plight of those in our community who are in need of footwear. Partnering with local businesses and organizations for the benefit of the People’s City Mission, the bank will be hosting a One Day without Shoes event for the second year. Cornhusker Bank put a local spin on this International event, inspired by Tom’s Shoes. The bank will be collecting used and new shoes, which the Mission will then distribute. Any unwearable footwear will be sold as recycling material for the Mission’s benefit. Donations of cash will also be accepted at any of Cornhusker Bank’s convenient locations.
In 2011, the bank’s efforts on behalf of the Mission netted donations of over 4,350 pair of shoes and monetary funds totaling $8,200.
The bank invites the public to either go shoeless on Tuesday, April 10th or join in a walk that date from Cornhusker Bank’s 11th and Cornhusker Highway location to the People’s City Mission to help raise awareness of the need for good footwear. The walk will start at 11:00 a.m. “Foot long” hot dogs and chips will be served to everyone attending the event.
Cornhusker Bank remains Lincoln’s oldest locally owned bank, demonstrating stability, soundness and continued commitment to the success of its valued customers and employees.
