Music for the Mission is back and ready to jam on Friday.

The fundraiser again features local singer songwriter Jared Campbell and includes opening band When Ocean's Rise.

The concert takes place at New Life Ministries in Endicott and the proceeds support the church's Back Pack program, which provides free food on weekends and holidays to hungry children. Last year's event raised $16,000.

Jared Campbell says that the money the event raises really makes a difference.

"The biggest thing, is that they are doing something to help, by them buying a ticket is by them helping to put food in that backpack for that kid. So anybody is welcomed to come, the more the merrier," said Campbell.

Music for the Mission takes place Friday at New Life with doors opening at 6 and the concert at 7.

A $5 donation is requested at the door.

The event is being organized by News Channel 34 in conjunction with Townsquare Media and is sponsored by Stanley Law Offices.
