Metallica have donated $75,000 to aid the millions of Texans who have been adversely impacted by last month’s winter storms, which resulted in massive power outages and widespread water scarcity almost two weeks after the storms had subsided.
“Texans running low on food are finding empty grocery store shelves,” Metallica shared in an official statement. “Food pantries are running out of supplies. And the freeze has wiped out substantial portions of the state’s citrus and vegetable crops.”
The band’s non-profit foundation “All Within My Hands” has donated the sum of money to Feeding America “to be distributed to Texas food banks,” the statement continued.
Metallica have also encouraged fans to donate to their efforts by visiting FeedingTexas.org to donate to their Crisis Relief Fun.
