Metallica have announced their continued support of education by donating $1.6 million to community colleges this year.
The band has been working on funding education and programs teaching teach and trade skills since 2019 with their Metallica Scholars Initiative.
Frontman James Hetfield explained his joy over the funding, saying, “I get so grateful hearing from those who benefit from our grant, hearing their story of doubt to direction. From those who are able to pursue additional education leading directly to meaningful employment.
