Michael Jordan Donates $7M to Charlotte Clinics

In the past, many have criticized Michael Jordan for staying silent during trying times that affect people who mostly purchase his products. However, Michael Jordan is putting his money where the critic’s mouths are, as he reportedly donated seven million dollars to clinics in at-risk communities located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Jordan and his brand are set to work with Novant Health, who announced Jordan’s donation earlier Monday. Jordan spokesperson Estee Portnoy said that their company and Novant began working together a few years ago, as Jordan was in search of ways he could help poor and disadvantaged communities in Charlotte. Portnoy noted that Jordan “really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate from the work we’ve done with the Hornets.”

According to the Charlotte Observer, over the next five years, an estimated 35,000 adults and children who don’t have access to health care or who use the emergency room for non-urgent needs will be serviced by the clinics. While speaking to a crowd who came to support the union between Jordan and Novant, expressed pride in teaming up with Novant so the two can “bring critical health services to under-served areas of Charlotte and the thousands of North Carolinians with limited access to health care.”
