Metallica is launching a national community service initiative dedicated to improving the communities that have been part of their journey for so many years. The band’s All Within My Hands foundation, launched last year, has declared May 23 as Metallica Day of Service, encouraging fans to go out and volunteer with local food banks to help fight nationwide hunger.
Last summer during their tour, the band contributed to local charity partners in each city they performed in including Little Kids Rock, MusiCares and Feeding America. Now they’re encouraging people to get involved by volunteering in their communities.
Check out the list of foodbanks here and find one to volunteer with in your area. If those are out of reach, Metallica suggests visiting the Feeding America website to find a nearby food bank. Volunteers who register to pitch in on Metallica’s Day of Service will be given an All Within My Hands t-shirt.
