Hospital donations: St. Joseph's Children's Hospital is holding a "Christmas in July'' campaign to collect donations of money and new, unwrapped toys to entertain and comfort hospitalized kids throughout the year.

Make a donation by calling (813) 443-2046, or drop off new, unwrapped toys and donations in the circular drive in front of St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, 3001 W Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., during the special "Christmas in July" community event from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 27.

Donation requests include gift cards, electronics, kid-friendly movies, puzzles, arts and crafts supplies, bubbles, infant toys, crib mobiles, teen games and magazines.

History Docents: If you have a passion for history, you can apply to become a volunteer docent at the Tampa Bay History Center. Docents help fulfill the museum's educational mission by leading tours for groups of children and adults. No previous history knowledge or education is required. The only prerequisites are a willingness to learn, ability to interact comfortably with groups of visitors, and availability one weekday morning per week. The History Center provides extensive training and ongoing learning opportunities.

The next training class is in September. For more information, contact Julie Henry Matus at (813) 675-8981.

Photo exhibit: The first U.S. show of Colombian photojournalist Daniel Rodriguez's work will be an exhibit titled Colombia, Face of the Past (Un Rostro del Pasado), from Aug. 2 through Aug. 31. The Gallery is at Carrollwood Cultural Center, 4537 Lowell Road in Tampa. Admission is free.

An opening reception for the exhibit is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Aug. 9. The reception will include Colombian food, music and a lecture about Rodriguez.

Rodriguez's photographs arrived in Tampa six years ago as black and white negatives in three old shoeboxes. They were mailed from Bogotá after Rodriguez died, as a legacy to his son, Carlos Rodriguez of Tampa. For years, the family has been working to restore the historic photographs.
