Puzzles to Remember
Today, Solomon Schechter School in Newton Massachusetts donated 200 puzzles to PuzzlesToRemember. The students at the school have been collecting puzzles for about two months leading up to today's donation.
Every year on a Sunday in March, Solomon Schechter School celebrates "Mitzvah Sunday." On this day, the students all engage in some form of community service.
The puzzles donated today will be sent to between 10 and 20 nursing facilities that care for Alzheimer's patients.
