Matthew McConaughey does not take for granted the efforts of first responders in natural disasters.
The “Dallas Buyers Club” actor surprised first responders of Hurricane Harvey in Houston on Sunday as part of National First Responders Day.
“I’m Texas born and raised, so acknowledging the hard work and dedication of first responders in Houston is meaningful to me personally,” McConaughey told E! News. “Over the past year alone, with the hurricanes in Puerto Rico, the Carolinas, and Florida and the fires in California, the number of heroic men and women on the front lines of natural disasters is staggering.”
McConaughey was joined by Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. The trio visited fire stations, police departments and hospitals.
“Today is about giving back and saying thank you,” McConaughey said in the Facebook video above. “We’re dropping off a turkey and maybe slipping them some bourbon as well.”
Last year, McConaughey delivered more than 4,500 frozen turkeys to residents of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
