An opportunity for personal growth: Bill Kilgour
For the past three years, Bill Kilgour has been a volunteer with the Ontario Lung Association at its provincial office in Toronto. Having experienced a major health issue involving brain surgery that affected his memory, Bill was drawn to the educational aspect of our organization and the opportunity it presented for personal growth.
“Although initially unfamiliar with this charity, as I worked alongside staff I quickly learned about its mission and its accomplishments,” said Bill.
The first task he was given was processing receipts. Then he moved on to data entry for donations and working on the Breathers United campaign. Other valuable insight was gained through volunteering with the Your Healthy
Home initiative, as well as being invited to work on the information booth at the Ontario Lung Association’s annual Better Breathing conference in downtown Toronto.
“These experiences have enhanced my education in many ways,” said Bill. “They have also given me the experience of working in an office with great people who understand my situation, which in turn has built up my confidence for the future.
“Thank you to everyone at the Ontario Lung Association.”
