Missouri River Relief

What we do:

River Relief brings people together to make a visible and lasting difference in their communities by conducting large-scale river clean-ups and education events right where it matters the most—on the banks of the longest river in North America.

Why we’re great:

River Relief is a volunteer- and equipment-based group. We are action-oriented! To date, we’ve taken 22,500 volunteers on the river to clean-up 1.7 million pounds of trash. We have conducted educational programs for 17,754 students and teachers.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We connect people to the Missouri River in a vital way and offer a chance to do something positive—giving them a sense of ownership. People learn the river provides drinking water and other important needs. They are motivated to protect the resource.
