Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN)

2019 Shelter Week (Bulk Shopping List)

The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) helps families who are seeking permanent housing by giving them shelter and three meals a day, through the hospitality of different churches and synagogues.

 With the support of Park United Methodist’s Church, Mission House volunteers from St. Cassian Church will be hosting guest families during the week of February 17 through February 24.  Please note that this year, we will not be using the school gym during this host week, but families will be staying in a Mission House in Bloomfield.  As in past years, St. Cassian volunteers will continue to shop for necessary items, prepare meals, volunteer during the day, sleep overnight, and wash the linens at the end of the week.  The parish community has worked together for many years to make this outreach a success.  If you are interested in volunteering during (or to help prepare for) our host week, please sign up using the links below.

Below is a bulk shopping list including the necessary items we will need during our host week.  All items should be found in Costco or other wholesaler store. 

(For items that can be found at a local grocery store, please visit our Grocery Shopping List at 

If you are able and willing to donate any of the following items, please use the sign up list below and drop it off in the Parish Center by no later than Wed., Feb. 13.
