After the devastation to the Bahamas caused by Hurricane Dorian, Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan plans to donate $1 million to organizations assisting with relief efforts.
Before Hurricane Dorian hit the United States, the Bahamas got the most from the storm. Many lost their homes and lives, and it seems that the death toll just continues to increase every day.
On Tuesday, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reported that Hornets owner Michael Jordan plans to donate $1 million to organizations assisting with relief efforts in the Bahamas. The Bahamas was hit by Dorian when the storm was a Category 5 Hurricane.
Many people around the United States can relate to how Michael Jordan feels when it comes to natural disasters like this one. Jordan plans on monitoring the situation closely to identify which relief organizations will have the highest impact.
Jordan is often involved with charities and food drives in Charlotte. During last year, he attended and helped at a food drive that would assist with relief efforts following Hurricane Florence.
Michael Jordan is a legendary NBA player who bought the Charlotte Hornets in 2010 for $175 million. At that time, the Hornets were known as the Charlotte Bobcats.
Throughout Jordan’s career, he averaged 30.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. As a player, he won six NBA Championships, as well as five Most Valuable Player awards.
It’s been almost ten years since Michael Jordan bought the Hornets, and his team has only been able to produce two playoff appearances. Jordan recently lost his best player in franchise history over the Summer, and his team may be moving in a different direction.
It’s nice to see Michael Jordan get involved and assist those in need. Jordan has been a gracious owner for the Charlotte Hornets; he’s assisted with relief efforts in the past. Continue to monitor any additional help Jordan may provide for those in the Bahamas.
