The Dassel-Cokato wrestling team partnered up with the Disabled American Veterans Group doing a fundraiser called Cash for Cause. The team collected clothing and household items that were donated. They worked shifts at the collection site, helping unload cars as people brought items. They also picked up donations on request from homes and garage sales.
Proceeds raised will go to veterans in need in the counties of Wright, Meeker, McLeod, and Renville. During the Christmas season $2500 is given to the County Veterans Service Officers and they disperse to families in need. The DAV also helps with transportation for medical supplies, handicap equipment and many other free services.
The DC wrestling team would like their community to know that they plan on making this an annual event. They would like to thank all who donated in what was a rewarding experience for them. Without the community's help, this would not have been possible.
