Matthew McConaughey has handed out 110,000 masks alongside his wife, Camila in order to help more rural hospitals in Texas. He partnered with the truck company Lincoln in order to provide hospitals with the essential PPE they need to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
This isn’t the first contribution that the actor and his wife have made to the cause as they previously donated 80,000 masks to frontline workers in Texas and Louisiana. The masks were a combination of surgical and KN95 which were desperately needed.
“It was important for us to make sure that here in Austin, not just the hospitals got them, but also the police department and the fire department as well. In this moment, we’ve got to find ways to help both sides because they’re all on the front line right now and we can’t afford to lose any of them.”Camila Alves, Instagram
