Meals on Wheels and the Taylor Jones Humane Society are desperately searching for volunteers this summer.
Meals on Wheels said that they lost around 50 volunteers with college students gone for the summer and their regular drivers to vacations. They hope that people from the community will come out even if it's only to deliver one meal a week.
The Taylor Jones Humane Society is always looking for volunteers year round. A board member/volunteer said that they have a few dedicated people but not enough.
However with summer break, the Humane Society does see more high school students volunteering to play with the animals.
These aren't the only nonprofit organizations in Abilene that need more volunteers and not just for the summer.
If you wish to volunteer go to http://unitedwayabilene.org to see what nonprofits need help or http://www.regionalcrime.org. The Regional Victim Crisis Center has many organizations within that need help such as; Victim Assistance, Violence Prevention, Big Country CASA. 1
