Michael Jordan, Hornets, NBA begin Florence relief effort

(WIS) - The Carolinas are seeing heavy winds and rain from what is now Tropical Storm Florence.

With the need for support for those impacted by the storm, NBA legend Michael Jordan, the Charlotte Hornets, and the National Basketball Association are working together along with several community organizations to raise money for the storm victims.

"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."

The American Red Cross, The United Way of Central Carolinas, and the Foundation for the Carolinas are among the organizations involved in the relief effort.
