Texas nonprofits that provide food pantries, shelters and other services in high demand are in short supply of volunteers.

Statewide, there is a shortage of almost 370,000 volunteer positions. In Dallas, about 75,000 people are needed to volunteer every week, according to the McKinney-based volunteer platform VOMO.

The nationwide Be A Neighbor campaign, from VOMO and Builders and Backers, aims to connect volunteers with nonprofits.
