Metallica Donates $100,000 to California Wildfire Relief Efforts

Metallica and its All Within My Hands Foundation will donate $100,000 to aid wildfire relief efforts in Northern and Southern California.

The band announced the donation on Twitter, noting that $50,000 would go to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund and $50,000 to the Wildfire Relief Fund. Metallica also encouraged fans to contribute money, non-perishable food, clothing and other supplies to victims, or to volunteer or provide temporary housing for those in need.

“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,” Metallica wrote, adding: “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.”
