Employees of Holy Family Hospital’s Haverhill campus are being treated this afternoon to hot dogs with all the fixin’s as a local vendor seeks to honor the staff’s frontline service during the health pandemic.

Wade Dempsey and his wife Pam of Double D’s HotDogs expect to dish out 350 to 400 hot dogs along with chips and cold soda. Interviewed at Double D’s hot dog trailer yesterday at Bradford Common, Dempsey explained he has been moved watching healthcare workers make sacrifices.

“Seeing how beat up they all look from dealing with the situation, I told my wife, ‘Pam. You know honey, let’s go give back a little bit,’” he said.

Dempsey told WHAV he has been extraordinarily lucky not to have been affected by the coronavirus. “We’re able to stay open and stay in business so it was something I wanted to do to help them out.”

Holy Family Hospital spokeswoman Deborah Chiaravalloti said the institution is grateful for the support during this especially difficult time. “We are continually amazed at the extent of the support and human kindness being shown us by our communities. Wade has gone out of his way to come to our campus to tell our workers they are important. His generosity is moving. It buoys our staff and shows them that the community knows they are working hard and are behind them every day.”

Each day, 97.9 WHAV FM has been setting aside time to highlight good deeds from community heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
