Cornhusker Bank Deepens Relationships in Community
Cornhusker Bank’s business model keeps the customer at the center of everything they do, whether that customer is a checking account customer, a business, or one of its own associates. As Cornhusker Bank prepares to celebrate its grand opening at 11102 Blondo St., STE 102 in Omaha, it is demonstrating that model and the values it includes by deepening relationships with the community and customers, living life together.
Spring will mark the opening of its new office with Prchal Petersen Group at 111th and Blondo. Allen Chaffee, Omaha market president, reported he was also happy to announce a newly formed partnership with Stephen Center and Cornhusker Bank. The partnership benefits Stephen Center through the receipt of shoes collected in the Omaha Community through the bank’s established event, “One Day Without Shoes.”
Cornhusker Bank has hosted a “One Day Without Shoes” event annually for the last 10 years in Lincoln. This event invites local area businesses and organizations throughout the community to collect shoes with them for the benefit of an organization such as the Stephen Center. In total, the event has garnered over 130,000 pair of shoes and monetary donations of over $70,000, which has benefitted the People’s City Mission in Lincoln. Regarding the importance of making sure everyone has adequate footwear, Stephen Center Shelter Director Beth Robbins noted, “The look on the faces of our clients when we provide them with new shoes is priceless, providing them with joy they may not have felt in a very long time.”
With the opening of the new branch in Omaha, Cornhusker Bank selected Stephen Center to benefit from all donations made in the Omaha market. Cornhusker Bank President and CEO Barry Lockard noted, “Cornhusker Bank believes it has a responsibility to the community, not only through the services and products it provides financially but socially as well. Cornhusker Bank’s local ownership and management allows it to know the market and its needs thoroughly and form lasting relationships with organizations and customers. The new Cornhusker Bank location on Blondo is an indication of the bank’s commitment to serving the Omaha market as both a knowledgeable advisor and good neighbor.”
