When the sister of Doug Applegate's old high school friend, Ray, asked him for a chainsaw after fallen trees damaged Ray's home, Doug knew more needed to be done.
“I saw some of the pictures and thought you need more than just one chainsaw, Janice,” Doug said, according to Good News Movement.
Ray is paralyzed and his sister is his caregiver. So Doug asked 30 members of the Roosevelt Roughriders high school football team to come over and help Ray out. They chopped and removed the damaged trees away from Ray’s home. “That’s just what people in Iowa do,” Applegate said.
