To celebrate National First Responder's Day, Texas' own Matthew McConaughey visited those who were on the front lines during Hurricane Harvey last year.

Wild Turkey, the bourbon brand for which McConaughey is the spokesman (and creative director), took McConaughey to Houston Sunday to surprise a group of police officers, firefighters, 911 operators, doctors and nurses.

"I’m Texas born and raised, so acknowledging the hard work and dedication of first responders in Houston is meaningful to me personally," McConaughey said in a press release.

Wild Turkey is also donating $10,000 to team Rubicon, an organization which provides support to communities affected by natural disasters.
