Let's give every struggling family in Lincoln a pair of shoes. 

What is Day Without Shoes?

Day Without Shoes began to help raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a person's life. During a campaign held every April, the community is encouraged to donate their new or used shoes or make a cash donation to help every struggling family get a pair of shoes.

Start Collecting Shoes Now

This multipurpose, on the go bag can be used not only for shoe collection, but as a shopping bag, pool bag or gym bag. You can use it over and over again. The possibilities are endless.


In April of 2011, Cornhusker Bank and People’s City Mission partnered to shine a light on the impact of shoe insecurity in the Lincoln community with the first ever Day Without Shoes campaign. Over 200 businesses, churches, organizations and schools served as collection sites for individuals to donate their new and used shoes.

This annual campaign found such success, that in 2020 a partnership was created with Stephen Center to provide support to the Omaha community as well. Since its inception, members of Lincoln, Omaha and the surrounding communities have collected over 284,400 pairs of shoes and monetary donations totaling over $110,200!

For more Day Without Shoes information, please call
For questions on collection receptacle delivery and pickup, please contact Amy Pappas at People's City Mission
Special thanks to Two Men and a Truck for providing collection receptacles and delivery service.
