Quiet Givers is holding a Heat Up the High Country fundraising drive to help keep the heat on for struggling families in Watauga, Ashe, and Avery counties.

The "Heat Up the High Country" campaign encourages local people to pledge to donate $5, $10, orv$15 a month through April to help fill heating and energy needs.

One hundred percent of funds pledged to the go directly toward filling heating needs in the area this winter.

Quiet Givers is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2013 to help fill the gaps in charitable assistance by partnering with other local charities and organizations to fill needs that other agencies can’t fill.

Needs are submitted by accredited agencies and filled through crowd-sourced funding, encouraging anonymous giving that changes reality for both the giver and the receiver.
