inviting music fans to come out and show their support by donating to The Salvation Army’s Christmas red kettle campaign.

Says the band’s front woman, Rio Scafone “I'm proud to be from Michigan. It's where I learned the value of strong community.It's part of who I am. Giving back, especially at Christmas time through our music and The Salvation Army just makes sense to me. This is home. We take care of our own.”
