For the second year in a row, Honor Society is helping The Salvation Army create awareness for our Christmas Red Kettle collections. We’re especially excited to rock out this year. Why? Because not only is Honor Society’s newest album A Tale of Risky Business, Pt. 2 REALLY GOOD, but this is The Salvation Army’s 120th year of collecting donations for the poor at Christmas red kettles.

That’s right- since 1891 those iconic red kettles and familiar bells have been bringing in donations so that The Salvation Army can serve others in need.

Join us as we rock out in celebration of another great season of giving!
