They’re working their way up the east coast for their Here Comes Trouble tour, but trouble makers they’re not – the young pop rock band Honor Society continues their packed concert schedule while partnering with The Salvation Army, making their next stop in New York City.
They will be wrapping up National Volunteer Week with a concert at the NOKIA Theatre this Saturday night, performing after a day of service at The Salvation Army’s Harlem Temple Community Center (for you New Yorkers reading this, the Center is located at Lenox Avenue and 137th Street).
Michael, Alex, Andrew, and Jason will work with 175 other volunteers to renovate The Salvation Army Harlem Center by painting rooms and murals, as well as building shelves for kids in the afterschool program. You can visit The Greater New York Division’s website here for more information about services offered by The Salvation Army.
When was the last time you went to a concert and the band had just finished a day of volunteer work?! And these guys have been doing things like this non-stop, from playing with kids, to feeding the homeless, to preparing beds at homeless shelters for adults, all as a part of the many Salvation Army Programs across the country.
They are a great example to their fans by using their talent to raise awareness of volunteering and supporting the work of The Salvation Army in communities around the nation!
After New York, Honor Society will head to Norfolk, Virginia on Sunday where they’ll be interviewed by The Norfolk Salvation Army’s monthly TV show, and then they’ll continue on to Washington, DC for a performance at the Rock N Roll Hotel Monday night.

The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia is in need of an army of volunteers – more than 5,000 – to help package 1 million meals for survivors of the Haiti earthquake. That’s a lot of people, but we’re confident Philly will show us why they earned the nickname “City of Brotherly Love!”
We’re partnering with Drexel University and Numana, Inc., an international hunger relief organization, to provide nutritious meals targeted to help the immune system of malnourished people. Your efforts are needed to help assemble and package these meals before we send them to Haiti!
Their dinner was made possible by volunteer efforts.
