Number of pounds of food that the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Exeter distributed in 2017.

Number of homeless families and individuals who were provided emergency food, supplies and referrals to shelters in 2017.

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Cleo Castonguay, Founder and President of SVdP on May 24, 2018.


We have lost a great man.  A man who gave to others at every opportunity.  A man who put others first and never asked for anything in return.  A friend.  A leader.  A loss not only for those who knew him but for the community as a whole.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Exeter, P.O. Box 176, Exeter, NH  03833.

We will miss you!

Elle collects money from her lemonade stand for SVdP!

It’s a beautiful day when a child collects $9.70 by selling lemonade and then donates to those who need it more.  Thank you Elle for your incredible generosity.  Thank you Mom for teaching your children acts of kindness.

Summer Family Food Program

School is out!  It’s a happy time for the children but not for the families who are trying to feed them.  Without the help of school breakfasts and lunches, many low income families struggle to feed their hungry children during the summer . .

That’s why we are starting this campaign early.  We have over 100 families with school aged children who will visit the Food Pantry weekly instead of monthly this summer.  Please make a difference and support your community with a donation.  We thank you!
