Community Lutheran Partners has two programs in place to help households recover from the effects of flooding and other disasters.

One+Plus Kits!
A First Step for Disaster Relief in the West Virginia Western Maryland Synod


When disasters such as flooding strikes a community, relief efforts arrive through many agencies. CLP has found a way to effectively contribute to these efforts. One+Plus kits are designed to fill the gaps in existing disaster relief efforts.

Our guiding example is this: Many times when relief efforts pour in, there is plenty of canned food for distribution, but no one has a can opener.|

The CLP One+Plus kit is designed around this idea: Don’t forget the can opener!

A sturdy can opener                        Dishcloth / tea towel
Utility candles                                   Scrub sponge

STUFF will provide household necessities such as sheet sets, towel sets, stainless tableware settings, cooking utensils, and pots and pan sets to households who have suffered losses and damage due to disasters. This response is designed to assist families in need after other agencies, such as American Red Cross, have worked with them in disaster recovery efforts. We have expanded our STUFF ministry to include domestic violence shelters.  Domestic Violence Shelters may contact CLP and request a STUFF kit when families are transitioning from the shelter into their own apartments.

Requests for a STUFF Kit may be made by disaster relief agencies, domestic violence shelters or your local Lutheran congregation. Please contact the CLP office.
