Metallica Breaks Record, Donates to Food Bank in Pennsylvania

Heavy metal band Metallica has been donating to various charities on their WorldWired North American Tour. They stopped in Central Pennsylvania over the weekend to perform at Penn State University's Bryce Jordan Center.

Metallica broke a record in Happy Valley -- they rocked out with 15,588 fans in attendance at the Bryce Jordan Center.

During their record-breaking performance, the band donated $10,000 to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.

According to the food bank's Communications Manager, Jennifer Sands, a single dollar provides six meals. With the winter holiday season approaching, the massive donation from Metallica is unbelievably helpful to the area.

"The holiday season is a very busy time for us, and it's obviously a season of great needs, so we're gearing up for our busiest time of the year, just looking to donations from the community for the holiday season," said Sands.
