There are many ways to get involved with the Tennessee River Rescue.  

  • Go to one of the clean up zones on October 5, 2019 at 9 a.m and help clean up!

  • You do not need to pre-register to work a zone. However, if you have a large group you may want to call your zone captain and let them know the groups ages and sizes. T-shirts are handed out first-come, first-served and a minimum of 2 hours work is required. Also, be sure to wear appropriate clothes and shoes. It can be muddy - but very rewarding - work.

  • Get a group of people to help run a new zone. This is great for a scout troop or church group!

  • Donate $100 to sponsor the cost of one dumpster.

  • Companies can donate $300 to have their name on the Tennessee River Rescue T-shirt.
