Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Kim!

“As a retiree just before the pandemic, I was struggling with what to do next,” says Kim, a volunteer at Moorelands Kids who gives her time on a weekly basis to help out in our head office.

Kim enjoys curling in the winter months, and she first learned about Moorelands through one of the ladies in her curling group who had sent her children to Moorelands Camp. “She spoke very highly of Moorelands, so I made a donation,” says Kim. After reading about some of Moorelands’ programs and our mission, she jumped at the opportunity to volunteer with us.

Since November 2022, Kim has volunteered on a regular basis in our Fund Development department to help organize corporate files, make phone calls, and send mail. You might have seen her helping out behind the scenes with our Christmas Holiday Program in December, too!

“I managed a lot of teams in my career and always tried to brainstorm ideas and include everyone – always looking for opportunities to streamline processes and allowing people to work efficiently at what they were good at.  We’ve made some great success so far at Moorelands”

“Everyone at Moorelands is so positive and friendly,” says Kim. Though she previously worked in IT for a large corporation, she sees that the atmosphere at Moorelands is different—it is like one big happy family. We’re glad to have Kim as part of our family!

Volunteers like Kim play an essential role in elevating our reach, and we are very thankful to have her as part of the Moorelands Kids community. Inquire about volunteer opportunities at Moorelands Kids here!
