Community Project

Elf's to the Rescue

Each year the Farmington Wrestling family chooses a project or cause to help give back to the community. Farmington and our supporters have done so much for our program that we would like to pay it forward!  This year our project is Elf's to the Rescue. Elf's to the Rescue was created in 2020 to help families in need in southern Minnesota. Families can apply or be nominated and then they are selected by sponsors.

Farmington wrestling has selected to sponsor two families this year. Please join us in giving back to our community!

1st Family (size 8):

This grandma is asking for help for her kids and grand kids. They all live together in a little home that was her parents. She has lost her husband over a year ago to old age. She loves having all the kids around to keep her company. Even with them working keeping up with the day to day expenses is very hard. Lets help this family have a great Christmas

2nd Family (size 12):

This family is being nominated by the daughter as she says her mom is an amazing woman and grandmother of 13 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. They are having a hard time as she is caring for her great grandchild who has microcephaly. She gets very exhausted and overwhelmed. Grandma has been so helpful in caring for her, as her children have fell into addiction and lost sight of life. She is currently in recovery and just really wants to show her mom how much she appreciates all she does.
