Charlotte Hornets Chairman Michael Jordan, the Hornets organization and the NBA announced today that they are working together with a number of community organizations to provide necessary and immediate relief and support to those affected by Hurricane Florence.
“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,” said Jordan. “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.”
Jordan and the Hornets developed a platform “that has identified verified local organizations focusing on Hurricane Florence relief and recovery efforts.” Fans can donate to several organizations, including the American Red Cross, Direct Relief, Foundation for the Carolinas and United Way of Central Carolinas at https://cares.nba.com/charlotte-hurricane-relief-efforts/.
