Chris Perez has a big corazón.
Selena Quintanilla's widower demonstrated the true meaning of Christmas with his recent act of kindness. On Thursday, the former guitarist of Selena and Los Dinos went on a special shopping spree to purchase dozens of toys to donate to the Salvation Army. Among the gifts that were to be given to local children shelters, were several Selena memorabilia such as t-shirts.
"I'm happy that I get to give back in this way. I'm a proud Texas resident and proud San Antonio resident. I fly that flag everywhere I go," Perez told KENS5.
Happy to have been given the opportunity to help give back to the community this holiday season. Thanks to everyone who took part in this. Because of you, a lot of families are going to have an amazing Christmas this year! Happy holidays my friends! :) https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2322492304442915&id=126495907375910
Of course, his good deed did not go unnoticed. "We appreciate the generosity of Chris. Christmastime can be especially challenging for kids celebrating in a shelter. This really means a lot to us," Brad Mayhar, Salvation Army representative, said.
