Our dear friends Annmarie and Pete Withers have lost everything in a house fire sparked by a faulty dishwasher on Tuesday September 16, 2015. Pete is a Volunteer Fireman for Rough and Ready Engine 5, Warren RI, formerly a member of Rehoboth Fire Dept. Where he grew up. Annmarie left the house at approximately 2:30 to pick up their three children (Madison, Sarah and Sydney) at School and moments later the fire started. Due to the great response of the Warren Fire Dept., the fire damage was contained to only the kitchen.
However, due to the tremendous heat, smoke and extensive water damage involved, the house is unlivable, and will have to be completely gutted and almost all personal property has been lost and they will have to start over. Please give what you can to this family who is always willing to give to their community. Pete has donated countless hours to the Fire Dept. Whether it is responding to calls at any hour of the day or night, donating his time and money fundraising for various community orginizations in town, and he is always willing to give those in need a helping hand. His wife Annmarie is always there to help people in need as well. she is involved in many orginizations in town. She sits on the board for the Warren Little League, she has been involved in many community fundraisers ( too many too mention). She and her daughters have recently donated their time at the Engine 5 Annual Clambake where she played an important role in their fundraising. She has also donated countless hours to many community events. At this moment, they are lucky enough to have a camper that they are staying in until they find adequate housing. Their daughters are devistated! This could be any one of us! This is the time that our friends Pete and Annmarie, who are always willing to help everyone else, could really use your help.
