Metallica donates $100k to California wildfire relief

Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation has donated $100,000 towards wildfire relief efforts in California.

“Sadly, for the third year in a row, communities we have called home throughout the state of California are again experiencing the tragedy left in the wake of wildfires,” says the band. “All Within My Hands would like to lend support to those affected in both Northern and Southern California by donating $100,000 to assist in relief, $50,000 to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund - created by the Community Foundation Sonoma County - and $50,000 to the Wildfire Relief Fund - created by the California Community Foundation.

“Both organizations are dedicated to long-term recovery efforts, helping residents resume normal lives as they get back on their feet after the devastation of these firestorms. “

“We would also like to encourage you to join us in supporting those in need as well as the first responders who have been working tirelessly to keep Californians safe,”
Metallica adds. “Whether you are able to contribute money, non-perishable food, clothing and other supplies, or your time by volunteering or providing temporary housing, every bit helps.

“Donate to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund or to the Wildfire Relief Fund.”

Last fall, Metallica also donated $100,000 to assist wildfire relief efforts in their home state.

Currently on hiatus as frontman James Hetfield continues treatment for addiction issues, Metallica are next scheduled to host The All Within My Hands Helping Hands Concert & Auction in San Francisco, CA in March of 2020 before launching a South American tour the following month.
