Nick DePhillips of Florham Park had a bright future ahead of him.

The day before the first-year apprentice was set to start his schooling, he fell 16 feet on the job -- shattering his neck, shoulder and pelvis.

The devastating accident sidelined the young apprentice, but his community is rallying to ensure that DePhillips gets back on his feet.

More than $68,900 had been raised as of Thursday evening on a GoFundMe for DePhillips launched last month by Anthony Cangialosi.

Cangialosi described DePhillips as a hard worker and quick learner. All funds will go toward getting him the care he needs.

Cathy D's Hair Design on Ridgedale Avenue is holding a special promotion in which all proceeds will go toward helping DePhillips. The salon is offering men's cuts, blowouts, braids, face-painting, color extensions and a raffle on March 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
