Hello Mustang District leaders,
My name is Rochelle Simpson. I am the Mustang District Scouting for Food Chairman. I am very excited to work with you as we help the needy in our community. At the bottom of this note, I have added some information about the Lillian Beard Deaf Center where we are focusing our delivery this year.
Of course, if your chartering organization has a food pantry, please do support that ministry. But for those that do not, please bring your food to this location.
Lillian Beard Deaf Center / Woodhaven Deaf Baptist Church

Houston, TX. 77055
Find here the online registration so we can keep track of everyone’ participation. We are looking for 100% participation. For ALL Service projects including Scouting for Food.

2014 is the Sam Houston Area Council’s 100th BSA anniversary and the Scouting for Food drive will be the kickoff to our work of service next year. Consider 2013 a trial run for next year.
I look forward to working with you. We are still working on breaking out the geography your boys will be delivering fliers and picking up food. Please be on the look out for upcoming information as well as attending Roundtable.
PLEASE ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION, THE LILLIANBEARD DEAF CONNECTION CENTER (LBDCC). LBDCC IS A NON-PROFIT AGENCY THAT ASSISTS DEAF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE HOUSTON AREA AND SURROUNDING COUNTIES. WE OFFER SERVICES IN THE AREAS OF JOB COUNSELING, HEALTH AND IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE MEDICARE AND MEDIAD, ESL CLASSES, CASE MANAGEMENT, AS WELL AS PROVIDING A FOOD AND CLOTHING PANTRY. WE ALSO HOLD SPECIAL EVENTS FOR THE DEAF AND HEARING COMMUNITY TO ENJOY, INCLUDING MOVIE NIGHTS, ENTERTAINMENT, ART AND CRAFT SHOW. OUR ORGANIZATION IS THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND IN HOUSTON, AND SERVES A GREAT NUMBER OF DEAF PEOPLE.
WE ARE HONORED AND GRATEFUL THAT THE BOY SCOUTS HAVE CHOSEN OUR ORGANIZATION FOR FOOD DONATION. OUR FOOD PANTRY SERVES MANY DEAF CLIENTS, WHO OFTEN HAVE EVEN MORE BARRIERS BEFORE THEM THAN HEARING PATRONS. WE ARE IN PARTICULAR NEED OF THE FOLLOWING ITEMS.
PERSONEL ITEMS LIKE SHAMPOO, TOOTHPASTE. TOOTHBRUSHES
OILS, FLOURS, OR OTHER BAKING FOODS
MANY THANKS FOR DOING FOR OUR CENTER.
