While the NBA awaits the end of its hiatus of the regular season, the Charlotte Hornets continue to help the community.

The NBA’s hiatus continues to remain active, as the league awaits news from the health department. However, the Charlotte Hornets have continued to find ways to help those in the community.

On Monday, the Charlotte Hornets Foundation announced that they would assist with local relief efforts. In these efforts, the Hornets plan to support the community financially, by volunteering, and with food donations.

More from Swarm and Sting

With the committed financial assistance, the Hornets plan to donate $250,000 for relief efforts in the community; this contribution will go toward the COVID-19 Response Fund, which is administered by various charitable organizations.

This announcement by the Hornets only comes three weeks after Hornets Sports and Entertainment and various players committed to providing funds for part-time staff of the Spectrum Center and Greensboro Swarm.

The Hornets have remained classy during the COVID-19 pandemic and have helped out many people. While Charlotte has already helped a lot, they may continue to find more ways to help out.

As of now, the Hornets sit with a 23-42 record; the team is currently in 10th place in the Eastern Conference standings. Before the announced suspension of the regular season, the Hornets finished with an electrifying comeback win against the Miami Heat.

This win was the result of many good things coming together, and it seemed impressive since the team was without Terry Rozier. If this was the Hornets’ final game of the season., the team finished on an excellent note.

Last week, league owners and players made it known that they want to finish the regular season. Many of the proposals that were talked about dealt with ideas on how the season could resume.

Finishing the regular season would help the Hornets with draft positioning, but the league’s hiatus could also affect the 2020-21 season. Commissioner Adam Silver’s original 30-day suspension is almost up, so more news about the regular season should come soon.
