We Couldn’t Do What We Do Without Our Amazing Volunteers
Ontario Lung Association volunteers make important contributions to almost every aspect of our work – from the lung health experts who help to develop our programs and services to the people who open and answer letters from donors to those who work on our various fundraising initiatives.
That’s why we look forward to National Volunteer Week – a special opportunity to express our gratitude to the extraordinary individuals who give their time, their expertise and their passion to our mission of improving lung health for all Ontarians.
Our volunteers range in age from teenagers to seniors and come from every part of the province. They are students, office workers, doctors, farmers, business executives, construction workers, lawyers, retired people – you name it.
What all these diverse individuals have in common is their shared commitment to community service and their vision of a future when every Ontarian can breathe easily and freely.
Here are some of the ways our volunteers are making a difference to lung health in Ontario:
As a charity, the Ontario Lung Association has a strong commitment to fiscal responsibility. It is inconceivable that we could deliver our many programs and services – and raise the funds to support them and critical lung health research – without the enormous contributions of our volunteers.
At the start of National Volunteer Week, we speak on behalf of the 2.4 million Ontarians living with lung disease when we celebrate the amazing volunteers of the Ontario Lung Association.
