HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Donating Items to Porter: Students have benefited from the generous donations of parents and community members who contribute items that range from boxes of tissues to back packs, bike helmets and school supplies. Please contact your child's teacher or the office staff if you have items you would like to donate.
Donating Money to Porter: Mesa Public Schools appreciates donations to individual schools, programs and to the district. One method of giving is through the Arizona state tax credit to schools, known in the district as the Extracurricular Activity (ECA) program. Parents, grandparents, and caring community members make a contribution and earn a tax credit on the Arizona state income tax. Porter puts it's ECA contributions to good use. Although the bulk of contributions is used for field trips, ECA contributions also support our Porter News Network with camcorders and sound equipment, t-shirts for special clubs, orf instruments for music, special presenters and authors, and much, much, more.
