Metallica’s All Within My Hands foundation donates $75,000 to Feeding Texas
Metallica are doing their bit to help out Texans affected by last month’s deadly winter storm, donating $75,000 via their non-profit All Within My Hands foundation to be distributed across the state’s food banks.
“The winter storm that struck Texas last month was beyond anything the state’s residents could imagine preparing for,” reads a statement. “As temperatures dropped well below freezing and widespread power outages swept the area, families suffered. Grocery chains did the best they could to support their communities, but their supply was hit hard. While temperatures have risen and electricity has been restored in many areas, residents are still very much in the throws of a struggle.
“Texans running low on food are finding empty grocery store shelves. Food pantries are running out of supplies. And the freeze has wiped out substantial portions of the state’s citrus and vegetable crops. As part of our commitment to fighting food insecurity, All Within My Hands has donated $75,000 to Feeding America to be distributed to Texas food banks.”
You can also do your part by donating to the Crisis Relief Fund over at feedingtexas.org.
