Community Outreach

The Bluegrass Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management is committed to promoting initiatives to enhance the workforce and the community.  Visit this page often to learn more about the initiatives championed by BGSHRM.  


 Our January 2020 Community Outreach Partner is

God's Pantry Food Bank.




BGSHRM will be hosting a canned food drive during the January Chapter meeting.  January is one of the lowest months for donations, since a lot of food drives and initiatives occur during the holidays.  Please bring canned goods and non-perishable food items in support of this worthy cause. 

God’s Pantry Food Bank serves 50 counties in Central and Eastern Kentucky in partnership with more than 400 food pantries and meal programs.

Total food distributed in FY 2019
39.7 million pounds

Fresh produce distributed in FY 2019
13.7 million pounds 

Hunger can affect anyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, or gender, urban and rural dwellers alike. Together with more than 400 food pantries and meal programs, God’s Pantry Food Bank works to alleviate hunger in Central and Eastern Kentucky. 


 Please help BGSHRM outreach initiatives by giving back, and supporting our Outreach Partners at the Chapter meetings.Line

Central Kentucky Job Club Needs

  • Sharing of your company job announcements/recruiting needs: We invite BGSHRM members to include the Central Kentucky Job Club when promoting their professional level hiring/recruiting needs. Email the information to Caroline Francis ( to be announced at our meeting or attend and present your hiring needs in person. You may attend the entire meeting our just drop in at 10 am and we will give you the floor to share your hiring needs and meet with potential candidates.
  • Speakers & Panelists: Since we rely upon community volunteer presenters, we need speakers on job searching, interviewing, resume writing, LinkedIn, and professional development topics as well as panelists who could chime in on workplace and employment related topics. 
  • Resume Reviewers: Twice each year we offer free resume critiques. This would be another place where BGSRHM members could be of assistance.
