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. 

  • MRR would really like to find a fuel-efficient vehicle to use as we travel across the state and out of state to conferences, meeting, and fundraising events. 
  • MRR is also currently in need of a 150-HP marine motor to outfit our new 20-passenger boat.
  • The roll-door on our box truck is quickly deteriorating and needs replacement. This TodCo © Door will keep us traveling to education and clean-up events with our box truck.  
  • A 1-ton 4x4 truck to help haul our new 20-passenger boat and make sure we can get up and down the muddiest banks.
