NBA legend and Charlotte Hornets’ owner, Michael Jordan, is giving back to the community. Recently, he cut the red ribbon at the opening of the Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic which aims to provide care for uninsured patients. Situated in Charlotte, North Carolina, the clinic opened its doors two years after Jordan pledged to donate $7 million to open two medical facilities.
The location of the clinic was not a mere coincidence. Jordan chose to benefit the hometown he was born in and give back to the place which shaped him as a person and led him to the path of success. During an emotional opening speech, Jordan said: “This is a very emotional thing for me to be able to give back to a community that has supported me over the years.”
