Hornets owner and basketball legend Michael Jordan has just donated $2 million to Hurricane Florence relief efforts in the Carolinas.
He’s giving the American Red Cross and the Foundation for the Carolinas Hurricane Florence Response Fund $1 million each.
This coming Friday (9/21), over 100 Hornets staff and players will also assist the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina in packing disaster food boxes, which will be sent to Wilmington, N.C., Fayetteville, N.C., and Myrtle Beach, S.C., to those directly impacted by the hurricane. Food Lion will be donating all the food for the boxes.
Additionally, the Hornets are now selling special “Carolina Strong” T-shirt and are donating all proceeds to the Foundation for the Carolinas’ Hurricane Florence Relief Fund.
