GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Basketball legend and North Carolina native Michael Jordan made a huge financial donation to feed the hungry.

The group, Feeding America, thanked the six time world champion for a $2 million gift to the organization.

The money comes from Jordan’s earnings from the Emmy-winning documentary “The Last Dance.”

Feeding America leaders say the donation will help supply food to an estimated 1 in 6 Americans who face food insecurity.
