Metallica detail All Within My Hands second annual Day Of Service

Metallica are sharing details of their All Within My Hands Foundation’s second Day Of Service.

The day-long event sees the band asking their fans to volunteer at local food banks in their communities following the success of the inaugural 2018 edition.

“Last year over 1,000 of you participated in our first Day of Service by volunteering at your local food banks,” explains the group. “Thanks to all of you, hundreds of thousands of pounds of food was packed and distributed to those in need . . . way to make a difference in your communities!

“We’re thrilled to be back with the details of our second annual Day of Service on Wednesday, May 22nd as we once again invite Metallica fans across the U.S. to join us in volunteering for a day with our friends at the community food banks we supported during our recent North American tours.”

“In cooperation with Feeding America,” they continue, “we’ve been proud to make contributions to their local partners in each city we performed in during the ’17, ’18, and ’19 WorldWired Tour dates and we’re asking you to give a few hours of your time on May 22nd supporting the fight against hunger in your neighborhoods. Over 50 food banks will be partaking in the activities this year, more than twice as many as last year! Each registered volunteer on May 22nd will receive a special All Within My Hands t-shirt commemorating our united day of service and a special thanks goes out to our friends at Salesforce for helping to make that happen. Please note that space is limited and you must register; unfortunately we will not be able to accept walk-ins.”

“If you do not live near one of the food banks listed on the site or you are unavailable on this day, we encourage you to visit FeedingAmerica.org to find a food bank in your community. We’re so inspired by the work that all of these amazing people do day in and day out that we hope you’ll join us to give them a hand whenever you can.”

Currently on a break from the WorldWired tour, Metallica will next be seen joining Major League Baseball’s San Francisco Giants as they host the 7th annual Metallica Night at AT&T Park on April 26 before launching a summer series of dates in Europe in early May.
