Metallica is continuing their giving ways and is upping their game in May with their new “Month of Giving” campaign.

In a statement, the band said, “In more typical times, we would be hosting our All Within My Hands Day of Service at local food banks across the country this month, but this year is different. Inspired by #GivingTuesdayNow, we decided to make May our Month of Giving, to do our part in meeting the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Rather than focusing on one campaign this year, every Tuesday throughout May we will spotlight a different organization we are supporting through our AWMH grants for COVID-19 relief. Each week we will share with you what these organizations do and show you how you can chip in. The Metallica Store will also feature select “Month of Giving” products and donate proceeds to our partner organizations throughout the entire month of May.

The first week of Metallica’s “Month of Giving” focuses on Feeding America. On the All Within My Hands website, there’s a state-by-state breakdown of the needs of various Feeding America food bank partners. To learn more and to donate to a local food bank, head over to
