Support for the Phelps Family

So, here we are, doing something out of the ordinary for an extraordinary friend and fellow snowmobile enthusiast.      Our friend, and a friend of many, Doug Phelps is in need of our help and we have taken upon ourselves to lend that hand that he is too humble to ask for. 

Doug started out, as most of you have, a customer of ours.  And for the past almost twenty years he and  his family have become  wonderful friends and are considered family.  Doug lives and works in Long Island, New York with his wife Chrissy and son Dougy, better known as Lil  Fresh.  Doug is a self-employed carpenter from West Islip, Long Island.  He is an avid Arctic Cat snowmobile rider! 

If we were to describe Doug with one word it would be HUMBLE  - Not proud, not arrogant or assertive.   That's Dougy! 

In March of this year we took a group trip out to West Yellowstone, Montana to snowmobile.   On the first day of riding, Sunday, March 4th, 2018, there was a terrible accident.  Many machines were wrecked and lives were changed.    There were many injured, with many levels of injuries, but Doug's injuries are long lasting and have lead him to be out of work to date.  It has been, and continues to be, a long battle both physically and mentally.   It has led to a financial strain on his family. Doug's a go getter, the life of the party, OUR FRIEND!  Doug is not eligible for workers compensation as he is self-employed.  He has applied for disability, but it has not gone through. We know he's hurting, his family is suffering, and we will do whatever we can to help him.    

Doug's injuries were mostly to his left side. He sustained a fractured pelvis, a broken hip, a fractured scapula in 3 spots and a fractured glenoid.  All requiring multiple surgeries. 

As you could imagine, the family’s financial burden is suffocating and they are sinking quickly.  Their bills are surpassing the little nest egg they had.

Please help support the Phelps family.  No amount is too small, and will be received graciously.
