The Charlotte Hornets and team owner, Michael Jordan, are teaming up with the NBA to begin Hurricane Florence relief efforts. The hurricane made downfall in North Carolina Friday morning and by the time the storm finally stops the area will face daunting reconstruction efforts which will cost millions of dollars.
According to NBA.com, MJ, the Hornets organization and the NBA have already begun working 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.”
Additional volunteering, rebuilding and donation efforts will be determined and announced by the Charlotte Hornets Foundation and the NBA in the near future, including opportunities for fans to get involved.
