Missouri River Relief's 

Equipment Wish List


Fleet Equipment

We depend on our fleet to be able to connect people to the Missouri River through our clean-up and education programs throughout the year. Thanks to our success over the last 19 years, we have to become more innovative and aggressive to reach the stretches of river no one else has ever cleaned.

  • Fuel-efficient vehicle - as staff increasingly travel in and out of state for conferences, meetings and fundraising events, an increasing need for a safe and fuel-efficient vehicle is becoming increasingly necessary
  • Utility Task Vehicle - as the organization identifies and tackles harder to reach places along the Missouri River, a UTV will help increase efficiency and effectiveness in those though to reach places along the banks
  • Vehicle Wrap - Help us make a statement on the highway with a new vehicle wrap, showcasing the Missouri River and our mission on our box truck
