Puzzles to Remember
Lately, I have been hearing from many people who say they have stacks of jigsaw puzzles that they are no longer using. These puzzles could be helping many people with Early Cognitive Impairment and those with Alzheimer’s disease.
What I have been doing is finding facilities in each person’s area where they can bring their jigsaw puzzles. I also send each person a donation letter which lists how many puzzles they are donating, and they are able to take the value of these puzzles as a tax donation.
If you have jigsaw puzzles to donate, please email me at PuzzlesToRemember@gmail.com.
