The band Honor Society’s latest tour stop was Minneapolis MN, last night, but before they performed for thousands of their eager fans, the guys spent their afternoon preparing rooms for the homeless at The Salvation Army Harbor Light Shelter. Michael, Jason, Andrew, and Alex met The Salvation Army staff and laid out and cleaned mats for the hundreds of men and women who would find shelter at Harbor Light that night.
And offering a creative way for their fans to get involved, Honor Society invited concert goers and the general public to donate pillows at their concert held at the Varsity Theater to help replenish Harbor Light’s low supply.

Nearly 5,000 meals are served each day to children, adults and seniors by The Salvation Army Bed & Bread Program, which includes Bed & Bread trucks that make stops in metro Detroit’s most depressed areas every day of the year.
This is the latest Salvation Army program that the members of the band Honor Society have taken the time to be involved with as they travel around the country during their national Here Comes Trouble tour. The guys loaded up food in the truck before hitting the streets of Detroit to serve meals and talk to some of the truck’s regular visitors.
We applaud Michael, Andrew, Alex, and Jason for their efforts in helping The Salvation Army do the most good. There are plenty of other ways a popular young band could spend their time as they tour from city to city, but Honor Society has been extremely giving of themselves and taking the opportunity to serve others throughout their stops. Thanks, guys.
If you’d like to learn more about how The Salvation Army is taking compassion to the streets, you can find more information on the Bed & Bread Program at The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Division’s website here. You can also catch a glimpse of Honor Society’s experience through the short video below.
Honor Society headed from San Francisco to Denver as a part of their Here Comes Trouble Tour, and while in the Mile High City, the boys of the band spent time at The Salvation Army’s Broomfield Day Camp. Check out the crazy games they played with the kids during the after school programs!
The Salvation Army will host its next Million Meals Event for Haiti relief in California’s San Francisco Bay Area, and this one will be like no other before! Instead of packaging 1 million meals in two days, our goal is to package them all in ONE DAY!
If you haven’t heard of these events before, The Salvation Army distributes one million meals per week in Haiti and will continue to do so over the next six to nine months. In order to meet the demand, meal packing events are being organized around the United States in partnership with Numana .

Youth at The Salvation Army San Francisco Kroc Center had an incredible surprise visit today from the band Honor Society while they were in town for their “Here Comes Trouble” tour! The guys took time out of their busy schedule to hang out with their new fans and everyone had a BLAST! Jason, Andrew, Alex, and Michael signed autographs and played pool, air hockey, and foosball with all the kids.
Here are a few photos of the fun. You can find more at The Salvation Army San Francisco’s facebook page. Also, check out the band’s tour stops and Twitter updates at their sites www.honorsocietyonline.com and www.honorsocietylive.com.
You may know the band Honor Society from their hit singles “Where Are You Now” and “Over You,” and the music video they did with The Salvation Army for the song “White Christmas.” (The guys are great Red Kettle Bell Ringers, by the way!)
