Websites keep listing Colorado Office of Emergency Management’s helpcoloradonow.org
BUT I’ve found this site isn’t currently working and hasn’t worked all weekend. I don’t know what’s happened with it or if it will be fixed. UPDATE: the website must have the “www” in the address — so click www.helpcoloradonow.org for information (thanks to @SouthernRedRose!)
If you have any concerns about the group you might be donating to visit the Colorado Secretary of State’s website: http://www.sos.state.co.us/ccsa/CcsaInquiryMain.do
211 has prepared a Relief and Recovery Guide to connect Colorado residents affected by the Larimer County Floods with disaster assistance and information: http://uwaylc.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Larimer-Flood-2013-RR-Guide-Sept12-720pm.pdf
