Alzheimer's Reading Room
I want to share some good news with the entire Alzheimer’s Reading Room community.
I found out on Wednesday evening that JCPenney’s will be giving PuzzlesToRemember $3000 to help provide puzzles to Alzheimer’s patients.
JCPenney’s is donating money to 50 students, ages 13-18 to help them with their community service projects.
Thanks, JCPenney! You will be helping many people who need help.
Editor Note: Puzzles to Remember has donated more than 5,000 puzzles to 343 Alzheimer's care facilities in the United States and Cananda. The JCPenny award is just one example of the many awards Max has received for his inventions and good works.
Once again, congratulation to Max Wallack. Max, you continue to impress and amaze us. You are a wonderful example of how much an individual can accomplish when they put their mind to it.
Max has been a Davidson Young Scholar since the age of 4. If you would like to read more about this young scholar -- go here.
Max Wallack is a student at Boston University Academy. His great grandmother, Gertrude, suffered from Alzheimer's disease. Max is the founder of PUZZLES TO REMEMBER. PTR is a project that provides puzzles to nursing homes and veterans institutions that care for Alzheimer's and dementia patients.
