Hornets owner Michael Jordan is donating $7 million to launch medical clinics that he hopes will help at-risk communities in Charlotte.
It's the largest philanthropic donation ever by the former NBA champion.
The donation will fund two Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, which are projected to open in 2020.
Jordan's spokesperson Estee Portnoy told The Associated Press Monday that he "feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people who really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project."
It's always cool to see people donate money to help their fellow citizens, but this level of donation that will directly make life better for a lot of people is just amazing. Big ups to Jordan for doing his part to make his community a better place.
