Puzzles to Remember
Ceaco Puzzles of Newton MA has donated 240 beautiful puzzles to PuzzlesToRemember. These puzzles vary from 1000 piece puzzles with great images of pets and gardens to many of the 300 large sized piece puzzles, shown below, by Thomas Kinkade and Jane Wooster Scott.
These puzzles will be distributed to nursing facilities, with the higher count piece puzzles going to assisted living facilities, and the lower count puzzles going to units caring for individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment. This donation will make puzzles available to upwards of 500 senior citizens.
This is not the first time that Ceaco has donated puzzles. They have been donating their overstock yearly to PuzzlesToRemember since 2009. Thank you, Ceaco, you are providing many wonderful hours and a great cognitive activity for many, many people.
Since 2011, Puzzles To Remember’s Assistant Director, Hailey Richman, age 8, has been distributing puzzles to nursing facilities in the New York area. Hailey spends time doing the puzzles with nursing home residents. She always brightens their days.
If you have puzzles that you would like to donate, please contact us at PuzzlesToRemember@gmail.com and we will find a location near you where you can bring your puzzles. We can also provide you with a donation letter so that you can claim the value of your puzzles as a tax deduction.
