Jordan back home, meets with hurricane victims

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Michael Jordan returned to his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, and met with some hurricane victims who benefited from his $2 million donation.

Stephanie Parker, her husband and four young children spent nearly months living in shelters provided by the American Red Cross, which Jordan helped fund. She hugged and thanked the owner of the NBA Charlotte Hornets.

She says Jordan’s visit “means he hasn’t forgotten. It means we are important.”

Jordan handed out Thanksgiving dinners at a home improvement store and gave away Jordan Brand shoes at a Boys & Girls Club Tuesday where he once played.

The six-time NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls says it was important for him to return home and see people in person, telling The Associated Press, “I can give money all day long, but at some point you want them to understand you’re human.”
