Michael Jordan is stepping up in the wake of Hurricane Florence hitting North Carolina. The former NBA star has reportedly vowed to donate $2 million to the hurricane relief efforts in Wilmington, NC, according to an NBA press release on Tuesday (September 18).

“You gotta take care of home. Wilmington truly is my home,” Jordan said of his hometown in an interview with The Charlotte Observer on Tuesday.

Jordan is donating to the American Red Cross and the Foundation for the Carolinas’ Hurricane Florence Response Fund. In addition to being raised in North Carolina, MJ serves as a co-chairman of Charlotte basketball team the Hornets. Hornets players and staff will also assist in reliefs to “help past disaster food boxes” that will be “distributed to those who have been directly impacted by the hurricane.” Their goal is to pack and deliver 5,000 boxes.

“People need to understand this will not be a week-long process,” Jordan said. “This is going to have a huge disruption on people’s lives—not for 10 days, but for years.”
