Iconic rock band Metallica have donated $250,000 to West Coast wildfire relief efforts.
Metallica have donated $250,000 to five organizations through their All Within My Hands charity.
The donations were made to the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund, the Oregon Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund, the Community Foundation Santa Cruz County’s Fire Response Fund, the Community Foundation of North Central Washington NCW Fire Relief Fund and the North Valley Community Foundation Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund.
“Communities across the west coast of our country are suffering,” the band tweeted. “The @AWMHFoundation is donating $250,000 to assist in wildfire relief efforts.”
“Wildfires have become a cruel and unwelcome annual benchmark in California, and this year we have seen them tragically extend across the entire west coast of our country,” the band said in a statement.
They added, “This is the fourth consecutive year, dating back to the  formation of the Foundation, that All Within My Hands has activated to support fire relief: the critical local services component of our mission.”
The band previously made donations of $100,000 to help wildfire relief efforts in California in 2018 and 2019.
