Metallica donates $250k to California wildfire relief

Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation have donated $250,000 to California wildfire relief efforts.

“Wildfires have become a cruel and unwelcome annual benchmark in California, and this year we have seen them tragically extend across the entire west coast of our country,” says Metallica. “This is the fourth consecutive year, dating back to the formation of the Foundation, that All Within My Hands has activated to support fire relief: the critical local services component of our mission.

“This year, we will be donating a sum of $250,000 to five organizations on the front line of this environmental crisis that has made its way into the lives and homes of far too many. The organizations include the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund, Oregon Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund, Community Foundation Santa Cruz County’s Fire Response Fund, North Valley Community Foundation Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund, and Community Foundation of North Central Washington NCW Fire Relief Fund.

“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 safe, temporary housing. Every little bit helps.”

Metallica guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett performed a virtual video version of the US national anthem prior to the September 23 home game by Major League Baseball’s San Francisco Giants.
