Rockers Daughtry and 3 Doors Down give funds to New Jersey-based charity Hometown Heroes

Daughtry and 3 Doors Down are currently taking their rock ‘n’ roll sounds to the masses, touring the U.S. together through mid-December. During a stop in New Jersey last week, the duo gave a significant donation to an area charity to assist with efforts to rebuild the city after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.

As the Hollywood Reporter reports, 3 Doors Down frontman Brad Arnold along with Chris Daughtry offered a $15,000 check to the New Jersey-based charity Hometown Heroes when they performed their show in Ashbury Park, N.J. The money was technically a donation from the Better Life Foundation, the non-profit charity organization 3 Doors Down founded in 2000. After the concert, Daughtry and Arnold sat down with Hometown Heroes’ founder and executive director to discuss how the charity is helping Hurricane Sandy victims.

The Hollywood Reporter states that during the concert, Chris Daughtry dedicated the number “We’re Not Gonna Fall” to the crowd and told them, “You are a community. You are New Jersey!”

Daughtry and 3 Doors Downs’ tour is set to wrap up at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., Theatre, in Dec. 15. The guys of Daughtry are out supporting the band’s current studio album, “Break the Spell,” while 3 Doors Down are touring in support of their just-released greatest hits package.
