Community Lutheran Partners has two programs in place to help households recover
from the effects of flooding and other disasters.
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
The CLP One+Plus kit is designed around this idea: Don’t forget the can
Can opener, Utility candles, Scrub sponge, Child proof lighters, Scotch tape, Clothes pins, Pencils, Pens, Sharpie pen, Pencil sharpener, Sewing kit, Spiral notebook, Fingernail clippers, Rubber bands, Paper clips, Duct tape, rubber gloves, Scissors.
Remember to secure the kit with clear plastic tape to help keep it closed during transportation.
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.
Please contact the CLP office for more information on donations and needed items.
