Hurricane Florence caused severe damage in the Carolinas this past September. Looking to give back, Michael Jordan returned to his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina to give out free Air Jordans along with a Thanksgiving meal to the people affected by Hurricane Florence, Associated Press reports.

Jordan gave out the Air Jordan 3 Charity Game as well as the upcoming Air Jordan 11 Concord. In addition to the shoe and meal, Jordan also donated $1 million to both the Red Cross and Foundation for the Carolinas Hurricane Florence Response Fund back in September. Explaining his visit, Jordan told AP, “I can give money all day long, but at some point you want them to understand you’re human.”

With this year’s NBA All-Star game taking place in Charlotte, North Carolina, hopefully more funds to the region are collected.
