Metallica Teams Up with West Michigan Company on Collection of Gear to Benefit Scholars Program
It's a win-win! Get some cool new Metallica apparel and help out a great cause!
Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation has been working with West Michigan's Wolverine Boots & Apparel to create workwear benefiting AWMH’s Metallica Scholars Initiative for the past four years. They've just launched the latest collection in this collaboration!
Since establishing the Metallica Scholars Initiative in 2019, AWMH has been working with the American Association of Community Colleges to provide direct support for career and technical education programs across the the country. Metallica Scholars supports 42 community colleges across 33 states.
One of those colleges in the program is Grand Rapids Community College! The grant Metallica provides is focused on helping nontraditional students acquire welding skills and get careers. The AWMH foundation has provided GRCC with $240,000 over five years.
The band says of the Scholars Initiative and collaboration with Wolverine,
Month after month, city after city, skilled tradespeople work to bring the M72 World Tour to life. It takes expertise, grit, and endless hours. And it wouldn't be possible without those trained in the skilled trades. That's why we are so proud that All Within My Hands and Wolverine are continuing this partnership.
50% of sales from the collection goes directly to Metallica Scholars to help students all over the country forge their own careers in the trades!
While work boots have been the main attraction in years past, this year they’re introducing a limited edition, premium leather, high-top sneaker featuring debossed artwork by Brandon Heart.
Also available in this year’s collection are the new Wolverine x Metallica Scholars Encore Shirt-Jac and Tour Trucker Hat.
There's a T-shirt and Hoodie too.
