Metallica calls for second annual ‘Day Of Service’
Metallica has called for a second annual “Day Of Service” on Wednesday, May 22nd. Once again, Metallica fans across the U.S. are invited to volunteer for a day at food banks in communities that have supported Metallica on its North American dates over the course of the “WorldWired” tour.
In cooperation with Feeding America, Metallica and the band’s All Within My Hands foundation have made contributions to their local partners in each of those cities. Now the group is asking fans across the country to help the fight against hunger in their neighborhoods. Last year’s first-ever “Day Of Service” enlisted more than 1,000 volunteers to spend a day working at local food banks across the U.S.
More than 50 food banks will be participating in this year’s activities — more than twice as many as last year — and each registered volunteer will receive a special All Within My Hands T-shirt commemorating the event. Space is limited and registering in advance is mandatory.
In its first six months of operation, All Within My Hands donated more than $750,000 to local food banks around the world — a practice the band and the Foundation continued on Metallica’s recent North American tour, donating $10,000 to local food banks in every city.
- Those who do not live near one of the participating food banks, or are otherwise unavailable on May 22nd, are encouraged to visit FeedingAmerica.org to see how they can contribute.
- For a complete list of participating food banks and information on how to register to volunteer, go to Metallica.com or AllWithinMyHands.org.
- Metallica will tour Europe this spring and summer before playing two shows with the San Francisco Symphony in September.
