The six-time NBA champion donated money from the ESPN documentary "The Last Dance," which aired earlier this year.
In a written statement, Jordan said, "In these challenging times and a year of unimaginable difficulties due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever to pause and say thank you. I am proud to bring additional income from The Last Dance to Feeding America and to donate its member food banks in the Carolinas and Chicago to satisfy America's hunger. "
The former basketball player was busy this year! Just over a year after opening a medical clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina, Michael Jordan opened a second location in Charlotte last month.
Two months ago, Jordan announced the purchase of a NASCAR Cup Series charter with Bubba Wallace as driver as the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season kicks off.
At the beginning of summer Jordan and Jordan Brand is committed to donating $ 100 million over a 10-year period to directly influence the fight against systemic racism. The brand announced this in July Donations focus on three priority areas: social justice, economic justice, and education and awareness.
