Lindsay McKillop: Community Engagement Coordinator

Congratulations and farewell to Lindsay McKillop our Community Engagement Coordinator as she moves on to further her career in event management. 

We had the fortunate opportunity to see Lindsay grow over the years as a valuable member of our team. 

Lindsay explains, “I first heard of Bethlehem Housing and Support Services in 2015 when I was taking the Event Management program at Niagara College. I had the opportunity to complete my placement with Bethlehem to help plan and execute their signature fundraising event, Empty Bowls."

Once I completed my placement I was offered the position of Community Engagement Coordinator. After learning about the important work Bethlehem does for the community throughout my placement, I was absolutely thrilled to work for a leading non-profit in Niagara.”  
Lindsay efficiently organized several Bethlehem events including; Empty Bowls, Naturalized Playground Grand Opening, Groundbreaking Ceremony, and our 30 Year Celebration Event.  She has been instrumental in developing our marketing and communications tools and has greatly enhanced our social media presence.  Her contributions have been a great benefit to Bethlehem and she will be greatly missed. 

When asked why do you care about our cause? She says, “Originally from Sudbury, I only moved to St. Catharines a few years ago. I was completely unaware about the issue of affordable housing within the Niagara region. The more I learned about the housing crisis while working at Bethlehem, the more it became important to me to help contribute to solving this issue in anyways I can."

When asked what did you enjoy most about working at Bethlehem? She responded, “The connections I have built over the last two years with staff, volunteers, partners and donors are something I will carry with me throughout the rest of my career. Bethlehem will always hold a special place in my heart, as it is where my career began.  It has been such an honour to be part of the Bethlehem team.”

We are grateful for Lindsay’s contributions to Bethlehem and we wish her the best of success in her event management career.
