Selena's Widower Went On a Shopping Spree, Donated It All to the Salvation Army



Chris Perez, the widower of the late, great Selena Quintanilla (RIP), gave back to the community in a big way this Christmas.

Perez headed over to Target to buy dozens of toys to donate to the Salvation Army. Plus, he included some pop art-inspired Selena shirts, available in the men's section.

"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.


Although he and Selena lived in Corpus Christi when they weren't touring, Perez has become involved in the San Antonio scene as a musician.
