What is Day Without Shoes?

Cornhusker Bank started Day Without Shoes in 2011 as another way to give back to the Lincoln community. In 2020 we began a partnership with Stephen Center in Omaha, to mirror our partnership with People’s City Mission in Lincoln. In the 12 year history of the event, we have collected over 235,000 pairs of shoes and monetary donations totaling over $102,000 for the Mission. In the three years of hosting this event in Omaha, Cornhusker Bank's Omaha location and numerous business partners collected over 5,400 pairs of shoes and over $700 in monetary donations.

Day Without Shoes is a collaborative effort with local businesses who volunteer to help the bank collect new and wearable used shoes for free distribution by Stephen Center. These shoes are important to someone whose sole form of transportation is their ability to walk. Beth Robbins Ellis, Community Engagement Manager noted, “The look on the faces of our clients when we provide them with shoes is priceless, providing them with joy they may not have felt in a very long time.” All shoes and any cash donations collected in Omaha will stay in Omaha for distribution.
