Michael Jordan Makes $7M Donation To Medical Clinics For At-Risk Communities

Charlotte Hornets v Los Angeles Clippers

When it come to social issues, Michael Jordan has never been one to speak out. But sometimes words can only do so much, and action needs to be taken to make an actual change in certain communities.

On Monday, the Chicago Bulls legend made some noise when he made his biggest donation ever, giving $7 million to help medical clinics in at-risk communities in Charlotte, NC. 

“(Jordan) 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.”

Portnoy says Jordan, 54, was motivated by a study that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those of any of the top 50 cities in the United States to lift themselves out of poverty.

A simply awesome gesture by the great one.
