Puzzle Club Donates to PuzzlesToRemember

Puzzles to Remember

I was recently contacted by Becki, who lives near Jackson, Tennessee.  Becki is part of a group called the New Jacksonian Jigsaw Junkies.  Over the past 20 years, this group has amassed over 500 jigsaw puzzles.  Storage space is getting tight, and they would now like to donate their puzzles to PuzzlesToRemember.

I have located about a dozen facilities in the Jackson area to which they will bring puzzles.  Becki told me one of the members had gone to the Veteran’s Home in Humboldt and noticed that there were jigsaw puzzles set up on the tables in their activity room.  I was happy to hear this since I had sent puzzles to that facility about a year ago.  It’s good to know they are being used to help our veterans!

I will be supplying the members of the puzzle club with donation letters so that each member can receive a tax donation for the puzzles they donate.
 
If there are other puzzle groups out there who would like to donate their puzzles, please contact me at the email on the bottom of this page.
