Michael Jordan Donates $1 Million To Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts
September 11, 2019
Michael Jordan has announced that he is donating $1 million to organizations assisting with relief efforts in the Bahamas in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.
“I am devastated to see the destruction that Hurricane Dorian has brought to the Bahamas, where I own property and visit frequently,” Jordan said in a statement. “My heart goes out to everyone who is suffering and those who have lost loved ones.”
“As the recovery and relief efforts continue, I will be tracking the situation closely and working to identify non-profit agencies where the funds will have the most impact. The Bahamian people are strong and resilient and I hope that my donation will be of help as they work to recover from this catastrophic storm.”
This is not the first time Jordan has pitched in to help hurricane relief efforts.
Last year, he donated a total of $2 million to the Red Cross and the Foundation for the Carolinas’ Hurricane Florence Response Fund.
