Portsmouth Schools Foundation has embarked on a venture to help improve education in the Portsmouth City Public Schools, and you can help by donating new or used materials your business no longer needs.

Pencils to PCs is a "free" store for teachers, sponsored by the Portsmouth Schools Foundation. This retail establishment has one thing missing—the cash register. In fact there are no price tags on any items—from pencils and paper to magazines and *computers. All donated items are given away to our teachers and students for FREE!

Changing your logo? Tired of storing things that you no longer use? Giving your office a facelift and need to get rid of that old furniture and equipment?

Now businesses and community supporters can donate goods, often getting a sizable tax-deduction because we are a 501(c)(3) and teachers get things they desperately need — pencils, pens, crayons, paper, books, folders, file cabinets, tables, and much, much more!
