“Put a halo of mistletoe over the city of Portsmouth;
ou’re about to kiss the holiday shopping blues goodbye.
Pure New England charm weaves its way through this city on the harbor,
where tradition and history are treasured and gift-giving is as sacred as a song.”
NH Magazine

Downtown Portsmouth shopkeepers are asking for your help to
ensure no child goes hungry over the Holidays.

Many local children, without the meals served during the school day, will go hungry over the  Holidays when school is not in session.  Help us help them, and let no child be hungry this Holiday season.

From Plaid Friday on November 25th through Christmas Eve, the shops listed below will  have donation boxes in their shops to benefit the Seacoast Family Food Pantry.  Shopkeepers will boost your generosity with donations of their own.

While you are enjoying your shopping experience in Portsmouth, please visit the restaurants below and thank them for sponsoring the shopkeepers’ efforts.  Shop local to benefit local children!
