Waite HS Spanish Club begins volunteer work with Toledo Children’s Hospital

By Josh Flores


On Saturday, April 26, 2008, members of the Spanish Club at Waite High School, Toledo, along with my daughter and I, received a special tour of the newly built Toledo Children’s Hospital.  The tour was set up by Stan Rinda, of Chicago Title, who works extensively with the volunteer component of the hospital. 


The tour was given by Toledo Children’s Hospital President Kathy Carlson. The students and I were amazed by the technology used to provide the best care possible for the patients. We had the opportunity to tour the neo-natal intensive care unit, where we were able to enter an unoccupied room and learn more about how

the infants are cared for and the latest research showing what conditions they respond the best to. The students were even able to take a few souvenirs home including a diaper so small that it would fit on a tiny doll and a tiny baby bottle. 

The purpose of the visit was to determine how the Waite High School Spanish Club could get involved in volunteer work on an ongoing basis at the hospital. 


President Carlson told us about a pair of twin girls from the Dominican Republic, who recently were brought to the hospital for a special surgery.  The girls only spoke Spanish and the hospital staff soon realized that they did not have any Spanish books or videos in their special library and media center Angela’s Place.  The staff went out and purchased some materials, but there is still a need of more. 


The first endeavor for the Spanish Club will be to raise funds to purchase and donate children’s Spanish books, videos, and other materials.  If you are interested in assisting with this effort you can contact me via e-mail at [email protected].
