Back to School Drive

According to the National Retail Federation, families are expected to pay about $168 per child for school supplies this year.  Some families are facing tough decisions as to how to cover these expenses.  Therefore, we are working with the Portsmouth Welfare Department to help families get the necessary school supplies. Click here to make a donation, no amount is too small.  This drive ends on August 15, 2022.
