Metallica’s James Hetfield is spreading holiday cheer to some of Colorado’s finest public servants. Having recently moved to the small town of Vail, Colo., Hetfield showed his appreciation to the local policeman and firefighters by handing out some gift cards.

Metallica started the All Within My Hands Foundation in February of this year. Named after the St. Anger track, the foundation’s mission statement is about “creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services.”

All Within My Hands recently joined forces with Starbucks and Spotify to create Metallica themed gift cards, which help raise money for the band’s foundation. Hetfield passed out the cards to the Vail Fire Department and Vail Police Department, both of which accepted the gift with smiles:

As for his move to Colorado, Hetfield recently told Joe Rogan, "I love the ocean, and I love the Bay Area, I love what it's got to offer, but there's just an attitude that it was... It wasn't healthy for me. [I was] starting to feel like I was just fighting all the time, and I just had to get out of my own head. So Colorado does it for me."
