Dr. Charles Vincent, the Baker Lions Club President, coordinated with the Sickle Cell Foundation of South Louisiana and Our Lady of the Lake Blood Donor Center to host a Blood Donor Drive on September 2, 2022, from 2:00-6:00 PM in the Baker Branch Library parking lot. The OLOL Blood Donor bus and its staff were on site in coordination with the Baker School system and worked alongside the Baker High School Principal, Dr. Russell, and students who aided in donating blood.

The entire city participated in recognizing September as Sickle Cell Awareness month. Councilman Charles Vincent, the Mayor, and Council members presented Ms. Erin Fulbright, Executive Director of the Sickle Cell Foundation of South Louisiana, with a leadership award. The crowning event was to make the Ambassador Queen Hall, who attended with her mother and sister, an honorary Council member and presented her with school supplies.
