With recent floods impacting communities all across Colorado, there's several ways you can contribute to the disaster relief efforts. Dozens of charities and nonprofits are accepting donations. But it's also important to know scams are out there.

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

Here are some groups accepting donations for flood victims:

- The Salvation Army

Help those affected during the days of storm ahead and during long-term recovery. The Salvation Army uses 100 percent of your disaster donations in support of local disaster relief operations.
