Texas grocery company H-E-B has teamed up with the Selena Foundation to sell tote bags to benefit charity, according to KHOU. The limited edition bags feature black and white images of the late singer with pink wording that reads “Queen of Cumbia.” Along with the proceeds from the sales of the totes, the supermarket chain donated $25,000 to the foundation will be given to the Boys and Girls Club of the Coastal Bend.
Selena Quintanilla’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, recorded a video with H-E-B to announce the limited production.
“We finally came up with something to be able to give back to Selena’s fans, but to also benefit Selena’s foundation,” Quintanilla said.
The bags cost $2 and while can be used for grocery shopping will likely be treasured as keepsakes for Selena fanatics. H-E-B has worked on other charitable efforts with the foundation in the past helping to curate a music festival a few years ago.
Get your hands on the totes at select stores and HEB.com while supplies last.
