26th Annual Juguetes Para el Barrio

Latin Fantasy Lowrider Car Club members were cruising and honking their horns with an escort by volunteer Harris County Precinct 3 deputy constables to distribute more than 4,000 toys and goodie bags to children throughout low-income neighborhoods of Houston on Christmas Day.

Members of the club gathered donations throughout the year at various events to buy all the toys and contents of the goodie bags.

Club founder Sotero “Shorty” Villarreal and his family opened the doors to their hydraulic shop, Shorty’s Hydraulics, where club members operated their “assembly line,” preparing for the Christmas cruise by sorting the toys and making goodie bags filled with various snacks and treats.
