Puzzles to Remember
Today is an important landmark day for PuzzlesToRemember. As of today, PuzzlesToRemember has sent puzzles to facilities caring for Alzheimer's patients in all 50 states, plus several Canadian provinces. Included in these shipments, are deliveries to over 60 veterans' facilities.
Today PuzzlesToRemember also received thank-you letters from 2 veterans' homes. Here are some excerpts:
"This donation could not have come at a better time and our veterans will benefit greatly. The residents are truly blessed and so very grateful. Thank you so much for thinking about us. Your compassion is notable and very special. Your gift of love and support is beneficial..."
"On behalf of our residents, we wish to express our appreciation for the donation of puzzles... The residents have a variety of needs and your donation helps us meet those needs."
PuzzlesToRemember will continue to provide puzzles to as many facilities as possible. In addition, PuzzlesToRemember is working on the creation of puzzles specifically designed to meet the needs of Alzheimer's patients.
