Organizations received an overflow of support during the holiday season, but places such as Salvation Army in Abilene are asking people to continue to volunteer.

Many families came to help serve in the kitchen and dining room during the holidays, Salvation Army says. In addition, companies around the Big Country donated items as a way to show support.

Admittedly, the number of volunteer tapers down after the holiday season. The amount of volunteers drop as soon as January hits, according to community development director Lindsay Trook.

However, help continues to trickle in since around 30 percent of Salvation Army's food are donations. According to a volunteer, Salvation Army wouldn't function without the help of the community.

If you'd like to become a volunteer, call Salvation Army at
(325) 677-1408.
