love INC logoLocal musicians Jeff Bursch and George Mick will perform on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 5 p.m., at the Shelton Presbyterian Church during the Fourth  Annual Love INC’s  Soup & Song Benefit Concert & Dessert Auction. The Church is located at 1430 Shelton Springs Road in Shelton, and entry is by donation, with a suggested amount of $10.  Soups will be donated by Mason County restaurants and local churches. 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 sixth Annual Golf Tournament and Ball Drop, which will be held on Monday, July 18, 2016 at Alderbrook Golf Course. Tournament sponsors are Hood Canal Fine Homes and Drew MacEwen – Falcon Financial, Inc.

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 necessities, 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  3,291 adults and children 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
