Gospel groups to perform at Augusta shelter

The Garden City Rescue Mission, in Augusta, is in line for a boost from gospel-music fans and Immanuel Baptist Church, by way of a March 15 event.

Performers at the local Feed My Children Tour 2013 gathering are to include Back Home, The Nelons and The Kevin Jones Family.

The doors are to open at 6 p.m., and the music is to begin at 7 p.m. Admission is $10 plus five canned goods per person. All food collected is to go to the mission, which is based at 828 Fenwick Street, in Augusta.

The goals, according to a promotional announcement are to "help feed the hungry, bring great music for everyone to enjoy, give the opportunity for everyone to help those less fortunate," and "bring communities together to help organizations stock the shelves of their food pantries and help more people than ever."Details are at 279-4191.

The church is 615 Old Edgefield Road, about a block downhill from North Augusta Middle School.
