Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, Quiet Givers is experiencing a high volume of needs for rent, utilities, and other necessities for people who are currently out of work. In order to address these needs as quickly as possible, the organization has established a COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to help address the recent influx of people in need.
“With so many needs coming in we just don’t have the time to fundraise for each need individually the way we normally would” said Executive Director Matthew Lucas. “A lot of people are out of work right now and aren’t able to pay their bills and these needs can’t wait. We’re asking the community to come together and help us provide a safety net for those who have nowhere else to turn.”
Quiet Givers is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2013 to help fill the gaps in charitable assistance in Watauga, Ashe, and Avery counties 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.
