Frankenmuth rocker troupe Greta Van Fleet has made donations to five charities for coronavirus pandemic relief -- including one close to home.
The Lansing-based Food Bank Council of Michigan received a money from the Grammy Award-winning quartet, along with a social media shout-out: On behalf of The Peaceful Army, a donation has been made...to supply much needed food to people in the state of our origin. Thank you for allow us to help provide emergency foods to our neighbors impacted by pandemic, it is important to support them in any way you can."
The donation is being used to fund a new Quarantine Box program designed to feed senior citizens at risk during the current crisis.
In addition to the Food Bank Council, GVF has also made donations to Feeding America, Heart To Heart International, the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund and the East Room, in Nashville. All were made "on behalf of "The Peaceful Army," a reference to the title of GVF's 2018 album "Anthem of the Peaceful Army."
GVF is currently working on its next album. The group was slated to tour South America with Metallica this month, but the tour has been postponed until December due to the pandemic.
