We hope you will make a gift this holiday season to help those in our community who need it most.

With local need and the rising cost of living it takes $5,300 a week to keep our doors open.

We need your help now more than ever.

Looking back on the past year, we are so proud of all that has been accomplished. However, we are faced with challenges every day that make us see how much farther there is to go. New clients and homeless individuals and families have increased in 2016, and in November we served our 600th patient in our onsite dental van.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Exeter relies solely on local businesses, organizations, and individuals like you to continue serving our neighbors.

If you are able to give, please consider making a donation this holiday season. SVdP Exeter is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and your tax deductible donation can be made as a meaningful alternative holiday gift or as a memorial gift.

With your support, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul will continue to serve our low income neighbors in need.

  • $50 will cover a dental appointment for a senior citizen who hasn’t seen a dentist in years.
  • $100 will keep the lights on for a family struggling in between jobs.
  • $250 feeds a single mother and her two hungry children for five months.


 Your gift ensures that SVdP Exeter will be here for all who need our services in the future.

Can we count on you?
