Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves delivered masks to hospitals in rural Texas as part of their contribution to the coronavirus pandemic relief effort in their home state.
They teamed up with the Lincoln Motor Company to deliver 110,000 masks to the in-need institutions last week.
McConaughey, 50, posted a photo of himself and his Brazilian-born model spouse delivering the masks loaded in a Lincoln truck.
The photo shows McConaughey behind the wheels while 38-year-old Camila stands beside the truck on the passenger side, with the couple both wearing masks.
McConaughey captioned the photo:
“Thanks to @lincoln for donating 110 thousand masks – me and @camilamcconaughey hitting the road to get em to rural hospitals in need across Texas.”
Lincoln Motor Company responded to McConaughey’s Instagram post, writing, “Happy to help. Thanks to you and Camila, Matthew!”
The donation comes at a time that rural hospitals across the country are facing a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other necessary resources to fight the COVID-19 pandemics.
Matthew and Camila McConaughey donated 80,000 masks last month
Matthew and Camila have been actively participating in ongoing coronavirus pandemic relief efforts.
In April, they teamed up with BStrong, Bethenny Frankel’s disaster relief initiative, to donate 80,000 surgical and KN95 masks to the medical workers in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Austin, Texas.
“Matt and I were able to get approximately 80,000 masks, and it’s a combination of surgical masks and KN95 masks that will be distributed between Austin and New Orleans, where they were getting hit pretty hard as well,” Camila told People.
She added that the masks were donated to hospital workers as well as political and fire departments.
Camila and Mathew live in Austin with their kids
Camila and Matthew live in Austin, Texas, with their two sons, 11-year-old Levi and 7-year-old Livingston, and their daughter, Vida, 10.
Camila took to Instagram yesterday to share a throwback photo of her family to commemorate Memorial Day.
The photo showed Camila, Matthew, and the children posing for a snap in a courtroom. Matthew is shown holding Livingston in his arm, while Camila holds Vida. Their eldest son Levi stands between them.
