love INC logoLocal musician George Mick will perform on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at 6 p.m., at the Shelton Presbyterian Church during the Third Annual Love INC’s  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. George Mick will play a few gospel songs and then lead a sing-a-long. Soups will be donated by Mason County restaurants. There will be stories from families and individuals helped by Love INC, and a dessert auction. All proceeds benefit Love Inc.

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 the fifth Annual Golf Tournament and Ball Drop, which will be held on Monday, July 20, 2015, at Alderbrook Golf Course.

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, furniture, medical equipment, firewood, supplying household goods and bedding 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) nonprofit which mobilizes local churches in Mason County to assist people in need.  Twenty 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:
