Matthew McConaughey Delivers 110,000 Face Masks to Rural Hospitals throughout Texas

Texas native Matthew McConaughey delivered over 100,000 face masks around his hometown after Lincoln donated them to different rural hospitals.

The coming months seem as though facemasks are about to become a must-wear protective gear when going out, and especially in hospitals.

The rapid increase in the need for face masks around the globe created a scarcity and price increase for the commodity as the coronavirus pandemic continues to threaten millions of people’s lives.
