McConaughey took to social media to share his picture with Alves in a truck on delivery duty.

"Me and Camila Alves hitting the road to get em to rural hospitals in need across Texas," he wrote alongside the photo which showed the couple in masks and headgear.

CNN notes that his donation comes at a time when hospitals in rural areas of the US are facing a shortage of resources and financial difficulties.

Last month, McConaughey hosted a virtual bingo night for isolated seniors in Texas. The couple had also donated around 80,000 face marks, which included a mix of surgical mask and KN95 marks, to frontline workers in Austin and New Orleans.
