Michael Jordan is by no means new to philanthropic work, as the NBA Hall of Famer and owner of the Charlotte Hornets has long donated to many different causes, including rather recently, a $1 million donation to the relief efforts for Hurricane Dorian.
In a new charitable effort, Jordan has gone and made a huge difference in the Charlotte community, helping to open up a brand new Novant Health Medical Clinic.

Jordan donated $7.2 million in order to help open up the two new Novant Health Clinics in Charlotte.
He acknowledged that while he will always have his connections to “Illinois and other places”, he knows “where it all begins”, referring to North Carolina, as MJ grew up Wilmington.
The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinic features aluminum strips on the outside of the building that form an image of Jordan slam-dunking, but despite the Jordan branding on the building, he made it clear that the great day was not about him.
