The Charlotte Hornets announced Tuesday that principal owner and chairman Michael Jordan will donate $2 million toward the Hurricane Florence relief effort.
Jordan released this statement in regards to Hurricane Florence last week:
"It's truly devastating for me to see the damage that Hurricane Florence is doing to my beloved home state of North Carolina and to the surrounding areas. The recovery effort will be massive, and it will take a long time to repair the damage and for families to get back on their feet. Together with the NBA, we have launched a platform to aid those most impacted. Please join me, the Hornets organization and the NBA and donate to one of the local organizations assisting in the relief and recovery efforts. To all those affected, stay safe and know that we're here to help."
Obviously, the Carolina's are very important to Jordan, who moved to Wilmington, NC as a young child and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Be sure to catch Mitch Kupchak, President of Basketball Operations/General Manager for the Hornets join Vice Chairman and Team President Fred Whitfield tomorrow with Power 98!
Way to go, MJ!
