Metallica To Fight Hunger Around The Country With Second Annual ‘Day Of Service’

first_imgMembers of the thrash-metal band Metallica will continue to help fighting hunger and bring more supplies into food banks around the country later this month when their second annual “Day of Service” takes place on May 22nd. The country-wide volunteering initiative is part of the band’s All Within My Hands charitable foundation, which launched in 2017.Related: Over 250 Musicians Gather In Russia To Perform Metallica’s “Sad But True”Over the last two years, All Within My Hands has raised a reported $7 million through the band and donations brought in from board members, in addition to $2 million in grant funding. Those are just the most recent numbers however, as Metallica has also spent the last two decades donating a portion of their ticket sales from every North American and European tour to benefit food banks. In addition to setting initiatives that combat hunger, All Within My Hands also provides workforce education.For the May 22nd event, the band encourages fans around the country to join them in volunteering to help those in need.“When we were talking about the mission of the foundation, it was really important to the band that fans be involved,” All Within My Hands board member Vickie Strate said about the overall goals of the band’s philanthropic arm. “We wanted people to feel like they could touch it without feeling like they needed to make a donation. That led logically to volunteerism.”Metallica – Second Annual Day of Service[Video: AllWithinMyHandsFoundation]Fans or anyone with some spare time on their hands on May 22nd can sign up to take part in this year’s event through the organization’s website, where they’ll also find a listing of participating food banks around the country. Walk-in volunteers will not be accepted. Participants can also enter the chance to win Metallica memorabilia by sharing content from their volunteering experience on social media.[H/T Billboard]last_img read more
