The Hillside Village of De Soto is looking for 300-, 500- and easy 1,000-piece puzzles and 11-inch by 13-inch and larger frames and old pictures for mounting them.
Several of the residents enjoy putting the puzzles together, framing them and displaying them in their rooms when finished.
To donate puzzles, call 585-1360, 583-3583 or Hillside Village at 583-1266.
