Thanks for the info. We live in the Woodland Park area and everything around us changed because of these fires. Thank God for the firefighters and other first responders. I broke my foot during the fires and am just now getting out of my cast.
Thanks for the info
The gov has setup a website - helpcoloradonow.org. Also, if you want to donate to nonprofits who are doing work for the fires and that participate in Colorado Gives Day (GivingFirst.org), go to Givingfirst.org. They have been reviewed by a foundation who are doing great work and Community First Foundation is ensuring 100% of the donations are going to the agencies.

Keepin' it light!
Also if anyone comes to your door collecting monies for causes for the fire victims, do not give them money. All the legit organizations do not go door to door. it is a shame people scam people during this time or any.

'so sad to see all the fires in Colorado.
Copied from the Boulder Office of Emergency Management:
Many people in the community are asking what they can do to help with the fire. Currently, material donations are NOT needed at this time.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO VOLUNTARY AGENCIES RESPONDING TO DISASTERS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO HELP.
Cash allows disaster agencies to purchase exactly what is needed.
To make a financial gift, contact the Red Cross at www.denver-redcross.org or call 303-722-7474 and specify that you are donating to the Boulder Flagstaff Fire.
Do not go to the scene of a disaster to offer help. The arrival of unexpected volunteers and material donations will interfere with response efforts.
If you want to volunteer or learn more about how to donate, go to www.HelpColoradoNow.org.
Other ways to help:
Hold a yard sale or put on a fund-raising event and donate money raised to a voluntary organization responding to this disaster
Have you already collected goods but canít find an agency that needs them? Donate items to a local charitable agency.
Keepin' it light!
