Community Connection is a priority for Cobble Hill Puzzle Co. We care about sharing our passion for jigsaw puzzles. By donating puzzles to senior assisted living homes, libraries and schools, we are in a small way able to support a healthy and wholesome activity to a diverse group of people of all ages, race and gender.
Traditionally, puzzles have been enjoyed as a solo activity. However, in this growing age of technological immersion, more people are enjoying puzzles together. We've especially seen seniors in assisted living homes enjoying puzzling together. As well, we've donated to many schools where the students collectively enjoy solving jigsaw puzzles.
Jigsaw puzzles are a wonderful way to enhance short term memory. You see the puzzle pieces scattered all over your working area. To connect a puzzle piece together, your eyes and hands have to search through many different puzzle pieces triggering your brain to memorize the shape of the piece and the colours, thus improving your visual-spatial reasoning. It's a perfect harmony of the left and right brain working together, as well as hand-eye coordination.
While we aren't able to feasibly supply every assisted living home, library or school with puzzles, we definitely keep a list and make our way around North America every year. If you would like to get on our list, please send an email to Linda. We will contact you about the type of puzzles that would do best for your environment and make sure your name is rotated in with our donation list.
Lastly, we would like to thank all the puzzlers who purchase from the Cobble Hill website. As we are mainly a wholesale company, the profits from the web sales helps us to give more back to each community. Year after year, our giving grows due to those who support our company directly. Thank you for being a part of our community of puzzlers!
