Hometown Hero: Carlos Lopez

For seven years, Carlos Lopez has been a volunteer at Children's Health.

Carlos owns a national furniture liquidation business and can set his own hours to volunteer. He donates two hours a week escorting families through the hospital, making deliveries, disinfecting wheelchairs and the hospital's iconic red wagons. 

Carlos has been known to pop wheelies with kids in the wagon and they love it.

Carlos and his wife don't have children. He's made Children's Health part of his life because he loves kids and wants to make them feel at ease and make them laugh in the hospital.

Children's Health can always use more daytime volunteers, Monday-Friday.
