Heavy metal group Metallica has made a lot of North Dakotans happy.
Following their concert at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks this past Saturday, the group presented the the Great Plains Food Bank with a check for $10,000.
The money comes from the proceeds of the concert and was given on behalf of Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation.
As a part of Metallica’s nationwide tour, the foundation is raising awareness of hunger issues in America and encouraging its fans to help where they can.
The $10,000 donation will help supply 33,000 meals through the Great Plains Food Bank to people in need in the state.
Metallica also donated concert tickets and a set of the band’s 13 studio albums to the food bank for a drawing among the organizations’s volunteers.
The Great Plains Food Bank provides food assistance to more than 97,000 individuals in North Dakota, with nearly half of those being children and seniors.
