METALLICA have launched a new initiative through their All Within My Hands Foundation. The band are encouraging their fans to volunteer at local food banks across the United States via feedingamerica.org on May 23rd, 2018. The cities the band hope to benefit are those they performed in on their 2017 U.S. summer tour (the band will also be back out this fall on this tour.) Those who volunteer via the aforementioned nonprofit will be rewarded with a special shirt from the band’s foundation. The group commented:
“Last year we announced the formation of All Within My Hands, our foundation that aims to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported us for so many years, as well as encourage participation from fans and friends and facilitate volunteerism among the Metallica family.
With that in mind, we are proud to announce our first day of service on Wednesday, May 23rd as we invite Metallica fans across the United States to join us in volunteering for a day with our friends at the community food banks we supported during last summer’s North American tour.
In cooperation with Feeding America we were proud to make contributions to their local partners in each city we performed in during the 2017 stadium tour and we would like to continue supporting the fight against hunger by asking you to give a few hours of your time on May 23rd as Metallica fans unite to make a difference.
Check the list at the bottom link to find participating food banks and more information about how to sign up to pitch in that day. Each registered volunteer on May 23rd will receive a special All Within My Hands t-shirt commemorating our first united day of service. Please note that space is limited and you must register; unfortunately we will not be able to accept walk-ins.
If you do not live near one of the food banks listed on the site or are unavailable on this day, we encourage you to visit www.feedingamerica.org to find a local food bank in your community. We’re so inspired by the work that all of these amazing people do day in and day out that we hope you’ll join us to give them a hand and keep your eyes peeled for other opportunities in your home towns.
Thank you for all of your support of All Within My Hands and the local organizations we’ve been honored to assist. See you on May 23rd & make sure to use the #MetallicaGivesBack and #AWMH hashtags for a chance to be featured on Metallica.com.”
