About us

what br soldier outreach is all about

In 2008, an informal group of people met up at a local motorcycle dealership to ship care packages to deployed troops.

In July of 2017, they obtained their 501c3 became BR Soldier Outreach.  Since organizing as a nonprofit, they have overseen the gathering, packing, and shipping of thousands of pounds of comfort items to scores of service men and women serving selflessly abroad.

Nanette is a lifelong resident of Baton Rouge, LA. Although she's never served in the military, many of her family members and friends have and are still serving, so she feels a strong calling to do whatever she can for those brave men and women who are serving. “Being an active part of BR Soldier Outreach has been a real blessing for me. When I heard that they needed volunteers for the board of directors, I knew there was a place for me.”
