Tales From the Field: Q&A With Volunteer Kimberly Willey

By Leigh Harper, December 27, 2016

Kimberly Willey is a 30-something who works as an executive assistant from 9 to 5 but spends most of her other waking hours volunteering. Her volunteer roles have taken her on adventures, from driving drummers to shopping for cookies. She’s even been serenaded with Vanilla Ice’s classic “Ice Ice Baby” by one best-selling Christian artist who shall remain unnamed as she drove him. Though she lives in Toronto, she’s crossed the border multiple times to serve Christian organizations and causes across the globe.

What organizations have you volunteered for recently, and what roles have you held?

Year-round, I serve as a logistics coordinator for Operation Christmas Child Canada through Samaritan’s Purse. I’ve coordinated artist transportation for Unite Productions, which brings Christian concerts to Canada. I’ve held that same role and also been a street team lead for Premier Productions. I’ve volunteered for Passion Conferences since 2007, and I’m the hosting team lead for Vantage Church.

Where have you traveled to volunteer?

I’ve served the area outlying Toronto, and then I’ve flown to Atlanta; Vancouver, British Columbia; Fort Worth, Texas; Houston; Washington, D.C.; and Uruguay. I’m going to Calgary, Alberta, later this year to volunteer at Canada’s main processing center for Operation Christmas Child.
