SunsOut Puzzles Donates 281 Puzzles For Alzheimer's Patients

SunsOut Puzzles recently moved their warehouse to a location in Kokomo, Indiana. I had corresponded with SunsOut Puzzles about the possibility of donating any overstock to PuzzlesToRemember. Soon, it became clear that there would be significant overstock, but the cost of mailing the puzzles to Massachusetts was prohibitive.


As a solution, I researched Alzheimer's facilities in the Kokomo, Indiana area, and came up with several care facilities. This week SunsOut Puzzles is donating 281 brand new puzzles to three separate Alzheimer's care facilities in their area. The puzzles are worth more than $4000.

This wonderful donation shows how responsible corporate citizens can make a difference. The donated puzzles will help hundreds of Alzheimer's patients have a better day.

THANK YOU SUNSOUT.

If you know of a corporation that would like to become involved in Puzzles to Remember effort to improve the lives of patients in Alzheimer's care facilities please let me know. You can contact me via the Puzzles to Remember website.
