The Charlotte Hornets Foundation has donated $25,000 to Novant Health to assists with COVID-19 relief and response efforts as its annual Wellness Grant. The funds will be used to purchase additional COVID-19 rapid test kits for mobile unit screenings, disposable masks, and to translate COVID-19 educational materials into Spanish. The tests and supplies will mainly benefit economically distressed neighborhoods and minority communities. “We are pleased to be able to provide support for our friends at Novant Health as they continue to lead the way in keeping our community safe and healthy,” said Hornets President & Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield. “We are appreciative of their efforts throughout the pandemic and are glad to have the ability to assist our longtime partner in any way we can, including hosting vaccination events at Spectrum Center.”
