Impacting Baton Rouge Through Service - Fall 2015


October and November have been busy months for Service Committee with our volunteers completing 124 total service hours at 5 events. Interested in learning more about our projects or getting involved in Service Committee? Here’s a quick recap!


On October 14th, Forum 35 came out to volunteer at STAR’s annual Hunks in Heels fundraiser. Shout-out to Heather Otten for organizing this fun project! For three and a half hours, Forum volunteers sold calendars to the crowd, passed cake balls, collected donations, and tended to the needs of the “hunks” backstage as well as cheered on Forum’s own Mathew Laborde!


For those that may not know, Forum 35 serves lunch at St. Vincent de Paul’s soup kitchen every month. This running project is organized by Quinton Renfro and is a great way to help out during your lunch break. Between October and November, 8 volunteers came out to serve over 700 lunches to those in need. 


Thanks to Service Committee co-chair Leland Moss for organizing a new event for Service Committee at BREC’s Hooper Road Park. Forum 35 volunteers spent their Saturday morning on October 24th clearing new bike trails for our community park. 


Not only does Forum 35 serve lunches for St. Vincent de Paul’s soup kitchen, but our volunteers also pack snack bags for the needy to have when the soup kitchen is closed. On November 18th, we had 13 volunteers give a few hours of their Saturday morning to pack 1,400 bags and make 300 sandwiches. This project is also organized by the amazing Quinton Renfro!


Service Committee works to make our community a better place through Forum 35. It is a wonderful way to meet like-minded young professionals and give back to Baton Rouge. If you are interested in getting involved and have a passion for volunteerism, please join us at our next monthly meeting! Have any questions? Email us at
