Reviews for Missouri River Relief
We had the best time working with the Missouri River Relief efforts last year. We found this agency to be well organized and had fantastic communication skills. They made sure we were updated on the progress and the outcome of our efforts. We used it as a community service project for our agency (Juvenile Office) and everyone enjoyed it. It is no easy task to appease juveniles who are being forced to attend. We appreciated Missouri River Relief staff being so courteous. I would highly recommend everyone take a day to help them with their efforts. We found it to be a perfect way to spend time helping the community while still having a little fun by seeing what unusual items other groups found in their areas.

I really can't think of anything other than we wish they could come back every year to our town so we could help!
