Metallica Donate $100,000 to California Wildfire Relief Efforts

On Friday, Metallica announced that they had donated $100,000 toward wildfire relief efforts in California through their All Within My Hands foundation.

In a statement, Metallica's foundation wrote, “Sadly once again communities in California are experiencing historically devastating wild fires in both the Northern and Southern parts of the state.”

“All Within My Hands has made a $50,000 donation each to the North Valley Community Foundation and the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation; both agencies provide service to victims at evacuation centers and other much needed relief.”

Metallica also encouraged fans to support those in need as well as first responders. “We would like to encourage you to join us in supporting those in need and our first responders in any way you can by donating money, non-perishable food, clothing and other supplies or by giving your time volunteering or providing temporary housing. Every little bit helps.”
