Basketball legend Michael Jordan is pitching in to help with Hurricane Florence relief efforts. The former player was raised in Wilmington, North Carolina and he’ll be donating $2-million to the American Red Cross and the Foundation For The Carolinas’ Hurricane Florence Response Fund, according to an NBA press release.
“You gotta take care of home,” Jordan said in an interview with “The Charlotte Observer.” “Wilmington truly is my home.”
Jordan is current co-chairman of Charlotte basketball team, the Hornets and in addition to his donation, the team’s players and staff will help pack disaster food boxes that’ll go to those directly affected. Jordan, the Hornets, and the NBA have launched a donation platform with verified local organizations working on immediate Hurricane Florence relief efforts. You can make a donation and find out more on their website.
