Veterans’ home employees win award
TILTON – The New Hampshire Veterans Home (NHVH) team of employees was recently the recipient of The Common Man Roadside’s “Do Good” lunch of pizza, dessert and beverage.
Sharon Wildermann, mother of NHVH Assistant Dietary Manager Sarah Wildermann, nominated the NH Veterans Home for the honor. She relayed, “They have been through a lot. They go out of their way to entertain and support all the vets there that can’t currently have visitors, and have worked through all of this fearing for their families.”
Since March of 2020, the restaurant chain has accepted submissions for the complimentary delivery to healthcare providers and first responders throughout New Hampshire in recognition of their vital services to their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The restaurant honors worthy employees who have gone above and beyond with their work during challenging times. In recent weeks, The Common Man Roadside has also offered half-price meals to healthcare workers and first responders.
The Common Man Roadside is located at the Hooksett Welcome Centers on Interstate 93. A Common Man Roadside Market & Deli opened in 2019 in Plymouth, and a new Common Man Roadside Market & Deli is scheduled to open this month in Manchester.
The New Hampshire Veterans Home employs approximately 350 team members and is home to 150 men and women veterans who have served their country and fellow New Hampshire citizens. NHVH was established in Tilton in 1890 as the Soldier’s Home for Civil War Veterans and is a recipient of the Quality of Life Award from the NH Department of Health & Human Services. The mission of NHVH is to provide high quality, professional long-term care services to the Granite State’s elderly and disabled veterans with dignity, honor and respect.
