VIDEO Matthew McConaughey volunteered with Meals on Wheels for Thanksgiving


Actor Matthew McConaughey and his family took time out from their Thanksgiving holiday to volunteer with Meals on Wheels in his hometown of Austin, Texas. The famous family delivered food to those in need.


More than 150 families volunteered, including actor Matthew McConaughey. Someone out there will get star treatment, when he and his family deliver.

“Every day there is so many people in need, older adults living alone in isolation, some of them with very little in the way of money. Certainly very few friends to come and see them,” said Dan Pruett, CEO of Meals on Wheels and More

Matthew, along with wife Camila Alves and son Levi, were on hand.

Pruett wrote on Facebook:

For most of us, Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends. But for many of the older, homebound people we serve, the fourth Thursday in November can often be just one more day of isolation and loneliness. That’s why we’re especially pleased to be able to offer holiday meals on Thanksgiving Day to hundreds of our clients who are most nutritionally at-risk.

Pretty cool for McConaughey to help out and to show his son first hand that even though his dad may be a movie star, he is still a part of his community. I also liked that his appearance wasn’t promoted via any of his social media – just a guy looking to lend a hand.
