Boone, NC – Quiet Givers, a local non-profit organization serving Watauga, Avery, and Ashe counties, is launching its annual “Heat Up the High Country” campaign for the fourth consecutive year this November 2023. The campaign aims to raise funds to assist families struggling with heating fuel bills throughout the fall and winter seasons.
Stephen McDaniel, Board Chair of Quiet Givers, said, “In previous years, our Heat Up the High-Country campaign has been a beacon of hope for many families in our community. With the increasing fuel costs, we anticipate an even greater need. But we are confident that with the continuous support of our generous community, we can meet the challenge.”
The organization has ambitiously set a fundraising target of $30,000 for this year's campaign, a significant increase from last year's $10,000 goal. “Our community's overwhelming support in the past has encouraged us to aim higher,” McDaniel added. “Every contribution, no matter how big or small, can make a huge difference and bring warmth to our neighbors in need.”
The “Heat Up the High Country” campaign helps those struggling with heating and energy costs across Watauga, Ashe, and Avery counties. The average cost of minimum fill-ups often exceeds $700, a substantial amount for families already grappling with financial difficulties.
