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.”

Those currently experiencing need due to unemployment, reduced hours, or other coronavirus-related emergencies are encouraged to reach out to Quiet Givers for help finding assistance by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

“Our first step is always to connect folks in need with agencies that we know about who may be able to provide assistance.” Lucas explained. “But right now our first priority is to get people the help they need as quickly as possible and we can’t do it without the support of the community. Any contribution toward this fund will go a long way in helping our neighbors who are struggling during this time. This is new territory for all of us, but we’re going to do all we can to make sure people in our community know they’re not alone and that we’re here to help.”

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.
