Colorado National Guard evacuation-CC-Guard-FlickrMany organizations are already trying to find ways to help thousands of Coloradans affected by this past week’s deadly flooding — by setting up relief funds, coordinating volunteers and dispersing supplies. Here are a couple good ways to donate money.

The Foothills Flood Relief Fund launched on Sept. 13 in response to the unfolding disaster in Colorado. All of the money donated is going directly to people affected by the floods. It will work with Boulder and state officials to determine the most desperate needs.

HelpColoradoNow.org is a collaboration between the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the Colorado Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster that pairs donations with survivor’s needs.

If you are in Colorado, All Hands Volunteers is organizing volunteers to launch an on-site project when the area is deemed safe.
