Weekend Survival Kits

Welcome Kyla Parkllan

A Message from Jeff and Heather Gorsline:

Please join us as we welcome Kyla Parkllan to our team as the new Director of Mid-Michigan Operations at Weekend Survival Kits. Heather and I are excited to have Kyla join the WSK team in a leadership role and hope you will warmly welcome her as she gets up to speed. Which we suspect will not take long!


Welcome Kyla Parkllan to Weekend Survival KitsHello to all the partners, volunteers, supporters and school liaisons for Weekend Survival Kits:

I am excited to join the WSK team!  This is my first venture into the non-profit sector, and I am eager to be part of something that will directly benefit my community.  I come from a corporate administrative background, most recently working at the global headquarters of a chemical manufacturing company.  While working there, I was most fulfilled while volunteering on many different committees.  I was even the leader of our internal Wellness Team that created programs to keep employees healthy.  I am excited to take my desire to help others and apply it to a real-world immediate need.  I am looking forward to working with like-minded colleagues and volunteers and helping to fulfill the WSK mission of “giving hope to hungry kids.” 

 When I am not working with WSK, I enjoy crafting, thrift store shopping, and taking care of my many houseplants.  I am also a coach and athlete at my local CrossFit gym.

 Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns you may have, I am looking forward to getting to know all of the people who make this mission a reality!
