Puzzles to Remember
Just a few weeks ago, PuzzlesToRemember had its puzzle inventory depleted. The public has stepped up and there have been many contributions in the past two weeks.
The local library collection boxes and bank location have yielded over 100 puzzles. In addition, I have been contacted by people around the country who wanted to contribute their puzzles.
Kerry, from the Philadelphia area, had over 100 puzzles to donate. I gave her the addresses of facilities in her area that could use the puzzles.
Rori from Minnesota also wanted to donate, and I sent her my flier and the location of an Alzheimer’s facility close to her home.
Rosanna from Florida, who has donated previously, had four big cartons of puzzles ready to go. Since, Rosanna doesn’t drive, I am trying to arrange for someone to pick up her puzzles and bring them to an Alzheimer’s center.
Kori, from Northern Kentucky, needed addresses to bring her 50 puzzles.
Martin writes that he plans to set up a puzzle collection site in Houston TX and then bring the puzzles to facilities in his area.
Thank you everyone, and please continue contacting me about where to bring your puzzles!
PUZZLES TO REMEMBER. PTR is a project that provides puzzles to nursing homes and veterans institutions that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients.
