Intermediate and High School Students Help Support the People’s City Mission in Lincoln

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

One Day Without Shoes is a partnership that originally started with Cornhusker Bank and People’s City Mission to help raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a person’s life.  Through this project, the public is encouraged to bring in their new or used shoes to help to put shoes on the feet of Lincoln’s less fortunate.  People’s City Mission’s goal this year was to raise 30,000 pairs of shoes.  

Norris Public Schools participated in donating to the Day Without Shoes by donating shoes and volunteering at the Help Center.  Norris Intermediate students helped by donating new or used shoes.  Donation barrels lined the entryways and areas in the Intermediate school and students answered the call by donating.  Norris freshman also participated in the fun and volunteered at the People’s City Mission Help Center by sorting shoes.  Click on the link to watch the video of Norris freshman sorting shoes and volunteering. 

The final count of shoes donated to the People’s City Mission was 35,613 pairs.  Thanks to all the students, staff, parents and community members that helped by donating through Norris to the, One Day Without Shoes, supporting the People’s City Mission in Lincoln.
