Long Island Cares is excited to partner with Metallica for their first Day of Service to support food banks across the country. Last year Metallica announced the formation of All Within My Hands, their foundation that aims to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported them for so many years, as well as encourage participation from fans and friends and facilitate volunteerism among the Metallica family. With that in mind, Metallica today announced their first day of service on Wednesday, May 23rd, inviting Metallica fans across the United States to volunteer for a day at the community food banks the band supported during last summer’s North American tour.
In cooperation with Feeding America Metallica made contributions to their local partners in each city they performed in during the 2017 stadium tour. With the aim of continuing to support the fight against hunger, Metallica is encouraging fans to give a few hours of their time on May 23rd to make a difference. Each registered volunteer on May 23rd will receive a special All Within My Hands t-shirt commemorating Metallica’s first united day of service. Please note that space is limited and fans must register. Unfortunately walk-ins will not be accepted.
Long Island Cares will offer volunteers two shift choices: 10:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-3:00pm, to help sort and repack food items. To register, please email the volunteer coordinator at [email protected] with your contact information and shift choice.
