#GivingTuesday #TruckBucks for Clean River Alliance - GIVE HERE!
Help us with a new, used truck to keep trash out of the Russian River!
This #GivingTuesday, Russian Riverkeeper and Clean River Alliance will celebrate giving with a goal of raising the additional $15,000 “Truck Bucks” needed to finally purchase a new, much-needed truck for its Clean River Alliance (CRA) program.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
In 2017 alone, CRA organized over 200 cleanup events, involving over 1000 volunteers, removing over 170,000 lbs. of trash from our creeks, river, and ocean beaches.
So why the #TruckBucks #GivingTuesday campaign? Since 2014, Chris and Clean River Alliance have been hauling all of this trash in Chris’s own personal truck – a 2000 Chevy ½ ton with nearly 300,000 miles. This truck has consistently been overloaded and the engine is not keeping up. In fact, it has broken down on numerous occasions leaving Chris to do his work with his other car – a Prius! With a bigger, newer truck, CRA will be able to reduce the number of trips needed between sites, will be able to use dump trailer to its full capacity and ultimately will save money due to being more efficient. It’s time for CRA to have a real work truck! Our #GivingTuesday #TruckBucks campaign goal is to match our current “TruckBucks” fund (generously given by Wine Country Weekend and CRA supporters) of $15K giving CRA a total of $30K for a new truck.
