Our Hometown Hero of the week is Matthew Carithers.
He was nominated by his wife Alexis who says, “Matthew was in the United States Marine Corps for four years before becoming a volunteer firefighter with Four Oaks Fire Department. He loved it so much, he decided he wanted to do it full time. He was hired with the Raleigh Fire Department, went through the training, and graduated as the “most outstanding recruit” of his class in September, 2017, all while navigating through the first year of fatherhood. He has always loved helping people, from pulling people out of burning cars to pulling cars out of ditches with his personal truck after it has snowed. He has always been willing to risk his own life in order to save others. He is the most selfless person I know, the best father to our daughter, and the greatest husband I could have asked for.”
Thank you Matthew for all you do to serve the community! As a thanks, we are sending you a $50 gift card to Kanki Japanese House of Steaks & Sushi, the best tasting show in town!
