Recap of Metallica’s First “Day of Service”

The power of metal can move mountains, and in the case of Metallica’s first ever “Day of Service,” it can make a difference.

Yesterday, over 1,800 Metallica fans descended upon local food banks across the United States and helped pack food for those in need.  Lars Ulrich even stopped by San Francisco’s Marin Food Bank and donated $5,000.

A huge thank you to all of the Metallica fans who participated in our very first @allwithinmyhandsfoundation Day of Service at food banks across the nation. We encourage all of the Metallica family to volunteer your time whenever you can as the good people who run these food banks always need assistance. Visit FeedingAmerica.org (@feedingamerica) to find a local food bank in your community in the U.S. and, for those living abroad, ask around to locate a food bank near you to lend a hand. Thank you all for making this happen. #MetallicaGivesBack #AWMH
