On April 5th, Cornhusker Bank and People’s City Mission partnered to help raise awareness of the impact a need for a pair of shoes can have on a person’s life by hosting the One Day without Shoes event. Throughout that week the public was encouraged to bring in their worn shoes that they no longer needed or cash donations to help put shoes on the less fortunate feet of Lincoln. By the end of the week, the six Lincoln Cornhusker Banks collected over 4,350 pairs of shoes and a donations totaling $8,200!
On, April 14th at 1:45pm, the People’s City Mission and Cornhusker Bank held a press conference at the People’s City Mission to thank the public for the success of the event and then begin to distribute shoes to the residents of the homeless shelter. The local media was invited to attend this event.
