Video: Honor Society’s Final Thoughts on their Salvation Army Experiences

Thursday, June 3, 2010

It’s finally here! You’ve been following videos, photos, and posts of Honor Society’s experiences with Salvation Army programs across the country while the hit band rocked out on their Here Comes Trouble tour.

Now Alex, Michael, Andrew, and Jason have released their final video with original footage and personal commentary as they reflect on their Salvation Army experience as a whole and the moments that most significantly impacted them.

The Salvation Army is incredibly thankful for the support of this talented band and all the hard work they put into volunteering with our programs! They made it a top priority to learn more about the people and communities they served and encouraged their fans to get involved as well. Who else can say they’ve done that while in the middle of a national tour?!

Thank you, Honor Society, for a great partnership!

Honor Society In Nashville, “Doing the Most Good” as National Tour Wraps Up

Friday, May 7, 2010

Honor Society, the popular new band that we’ve partnered with the last few months, is wrapping up their national Here Comes Trouble tour with a show tonight in Nashville and a concert tomorrow in Atlanta tomorrow, May 8.

***If you’re in the Nashville area and able to make it out to the concert at Rocketown tonight, please bring nonperishable food items! Alex, Andrew, Michael, and Jason are holding a food drive to benefit the local Salvation Army food pantry, and you can help them in “doing the most good!” ***

Honor Society has done an INCREDIBLE job of supporting Salvation Army programs across the country. They no doubt have a lot of things they are doing as they enjoy their national tour, but we very much appreciate that they’re also making it a priority to give back to communities along the way and encouraging their fans to do the same!

Check out the most recent clips the band recorded of their time in Allentown, Pennsylvania; Washington, DC; and Cleveland, Ohio.

Allentown, PA (April 29): Honor Society served dinner to excited kids at the Community Center, and in a slight role reversal, the band was the audience to some children eager to show off their talents!
