Meet Quinn Kirby


As the Program Manager for Gifts of Light, my job is to turn generous donations into basic necessities and meaningful experiences for CAMH patients. We understand that it’s often the little things—like cozy pajamas or a toothbrush—that can make a big impact for people living with mental illness. A simple gesture such as helping a patient get a dental check-up or take part in an art class can mean everything. It reminds our patients that people believe in them and they are not alone in their recovery.

The best part of my job is seeing the smiles on our patients’ faces, and hearing from them and their families about how the program has helped them. I’m so proud when I get to share these stories with our donors and volunteers.

We are so grateful to those who support Gifts of Light. You give our patients strength, courage and hope, while also helping us the program grow so we can reach even more people.

On behalf of the people we serve, thank you for your ongoing support.
