Kid Caregivers Donates 1000 Puzzles to ARTIS Senior Living for COVID-19 Relief


We have exciting news! The ThredUp Store ( had a wonderful campaign. During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic when several states had a "shelter in place", ThredUp had an amazing incentive. During the shelter in place, many people turned to jigsaw puzzle-solving as a relaxing pastime. When they were finished with all of their puzzles, they wanted to donate them. ThredUp the world's largest consignment online thrift store, had a wonderful offer. The plan was for every puzzle donated to their store, they would donate a meal to Feeding America ( Thousands of generous donors sent in their puzzles and they amassed 12,000 puzzles! They closed the initiative in May. ThredUP needs their warehouse space. Their warehouse has 12,000 puzzles in need of a home! That part is where Kid Caregivers comes to the rescue! If you know of an organization on the East Coast that is willing to take a bulk order of 1000 puzzles in which to distribute them to nursing homes, memory care facilities, etc, please reach out to us! We are working with middle and high school students who will distribute the puzzles with us and receive volunteer service credit. We also have OUTDOOR Puzzle Time! Using COVID-19 precautions our volunteers can STILL participate in our Intergenerational Puzzle Time Program. Student volunteers wear masks and follow safety guidelines.  Read the story here
