On Friday, February 7, 2015 at 6 p.m., the Shelton Presbyterian Church will host Love INC’s annual Soup & Song Benefit Concert. The church is located at 1430 Shelton Springs Road in Shelton, and entry is by donation, with a suggested amount of $10.
Local musicians will be featured, along with soups donated by Mason County restaurants, stories from families and individuals helped by Love INC, and a dessert auction.
Soup & Song is one of two major fundraisers for Love INC, a network of Christian churches that rely on in-kind, financial, and volunteer support to provide services. The second is an annual Golf Tournament, which is held in July.
Donations will be accepted during the event to help support the ongoing work of Love INC’s ‘Gap Ministries’, which help to transform and improve the lives of impoverished residents of Mason County. Some services provided include job search mentoring, clothes and backpacks for school children, firewood, and supplying household goods to people who are getting back on their feet after a job loss, divorce, or other unfortunate circumstance.
“Without this kind of community support, Love INC would not be able to serve people in need,” said Love INC Clearinghouse Director, Leanna Shipp.
All proceeds from this event go to Love INC of Mason County, a 501(c) (3) non-profit which mobilizes local churches in Mason County to assist people in need. Twenty-one church affiliates in Mason County helped nearly 2,000 people last year. Love INC Clearinghouse hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information call (360) 462-LOVE (5683), or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
