“We’re thrilled to announce our second annual Day of Service will be on Wednesday, May 22nd and once again invite you to join us! We’re asking you to give a few hours of your time to support the fight against hunger in your neighborhood. Check our list of participating food banks and learn how to sign up.
Each volunteer registered with one of our partner food banks on May 22nd will receive a special All Within My Hands t-shirt commemorating our united day of service. Please note that space is limited and you must register; unfortunately we will not be able to accept walk-ins.
Last year hundreds of thousands of pounds of food was packed and distributed to those in need! Thank you for supporting All Within My Hands and the local organizations we’ve been honored to assist. See you on May 22nd and make sure to use the #MetallicaGivesBack and #AWMH hashtags for a chance to be featured on Metallica.com.”
