the latest from the volunteer system im a member of

The website http://www.helpcoloradonow.org/ has been activated and is being published as place for the public to get information as a way to volunteer. The website http://www.crisiscleanup.org/ will be used as the tool to arrange teams to assist homeowners with cleanup and debris needs

Tony Frank, the University President at CSU just sent out this email with opportunities to volunteer and donation solicitations.

The greatest need at the moment is funding to address the immediate
needs of flood victims. There are a number of ways you can donate,
and any gift – no matter how small – will help.

* CSUCares is a fund supported by members of the CSU community
specifically to aid CSU students, faculty, staff, and retirees who
are impacted by natural disasters. We anticipate a significant need
for this support in the coming weeks. Gifts to CSUCares can be made
at https://advancing.colostate.edu/CSUCARES. To apply for assistance
through CSUCares, visit
https://advancing.colostate.edu/CSUCARES/APPLY.

* A fund has been set up through our local Community Funded
organization to support Northern Colorado flood relief efforts and
victim assistance. You can contribute at:
http://communityfunded.com/projects/rhedrick/northern-colorado-flood-
relief/

* We also encourage members of the university community to support
the American Red Cross to help people across Colorado and other
western states where flash flooding has forced thousands from their
homes. You can donate by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-
RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10
donation.

* Timberline Church in Fort Collins has served as an evacuation
center throughout the weekend and still has a need for volunteers
and donations to help those in need. You can sign up at

The Boulder Climbing Community has started a donations page. Donations will go to organize and repair trails in Eldo, Boulder OSMP and Boulder Canyon.

Note: the link also provides an email address to sign up to volunteer for trail repair days.

Another possible opportunity to volunteer for OSMP trail reconstruction that I copied from the Boulder Trail Runners group list:

"If you know of individuals or groups that would like to volunteer, they can
submit a volunteer project request by emailing
OSMPVolunteer@bouldercolorado.gov<https://webmail.bouldercolorado.gov/owa/redir.aspx?C=hb-gTZPWoEu97SFBTUlOZ-TwNh3ZhtAI_W5F7GqAW6XZacEr58ndq5xJ9EoKAkggyJBfYZo6fg4.&URL=mailto%3aOSMPVolunteer%40bouldercolorado.gov>
.
OSMP will start utilizing volunteer groups in the field as soon as it is
safe and efficient to do so."

Just got an email for this up in Ft Collins.
----------------------------------------------

The CSU Environmental Learning Center trails are a mess of mud and debris, and it'll take a sizable collective effort to help us restore them to a usable condition. This is bigger than just our staff can tackle. Please consider joining us this Friday (September 20) from 3-6pm or Saturday (September 21) from 9-Noon for trailwork, river clean-up, food and camaraderie. Good things happen when people come together to help following a big event such as the flood. Come be part of it!



Directions: Head east on Drake Road. Approximately one mile after passing the intersection at Timberline, turn left on Environmental Drive. The road will cross a one-lane bridge and turn sharply to the south. Before making the sharp turn south, take a sharp left on the gravel road (you will see the ELC sign), crossing the railroad tracks. Meet in the parking lot.
