METALLICA Donates $100,000 To Wildfire Relief Efforts

METALLICA has announced a new donation of $100,000 to help wildfire relief efforts in the state of California.

The band made the donation through its All Within My Hands non-profit foundation, which was launched in 2017 to help creating sustainable communities by tackling the issues of hunger and workforce education and encouraging volunteerism.

Wildfires have continued to ravage parts of both Northern and Southern California, consuming tens of thousands of acres, displacing thousands and knocking out power.

Earlier tonight, METALLICA released the following statement via its social media: "Sadly, for the third year in a row, communities we have called home throughout the state of California are again experiencing the tragedy left in the wake of wildfires.

"The All Within My Hands Foundation would like to lend support to those affected in both Northern and Southern California by donating $100,000 to assist in relief, $50,000 to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund - created by the Community Foundation Sonoma County - and $50,000 to the Wildfire Relief Fund - created by the California Community Foundation.

"Both organizations are dedicated to long-term recovery efforts, helping residents resume normal lives as they get back on their feet after the devastation of these firestorms. We would also like to encourage you to join us in supporting those in need as well as the first responders who have been working tirelessly to keep Californians safe. Whether you are able to contribute money, non-perishable food, clothing and other supplies, or your time by volunteering or providing temporary housing, every bit helps."

Last year, METALLICA also donated $100,000 toward wildfire relief efforts in California.

Two years ago, METALLICA headlined a wildfire relief concert in San Francisco.

Sadly, for the third year in a row, communities we have called home throughout the state of California are again...
