How to Get Involved

Thank you for your interest in From Cover to Cover!


There are several ways you can get involved with this worthwhile cause. This page will provide you with information on how to make blankets, where you can donate monetarily, drop-off locations, upcoming fundraisers, and community awareness events. We value all of our volunteers and donors. You are all coming together to help promote literacy in the Quad Cities and surrounding communities and we thank you for your support "because every child deserves the comfort of a book and a snuggle."
