Volunteer workers and donations of cash, clothing, food and furniture are needed at the Hollywood office of Angel's Flight, a non-denominational shelter for runaways and abused and battered children under the age of 18.
Angel's Flight was established by the Catholic Welfare Bureau in October, 1982. The Hollywood office is located at 6361 Yucca Ave.
"We try to intercept (runaway) kids before the pimps and pushers get to them," said Ellie DiNatale, administrative assistant at the downtown branch.
"We help anyone under 18 who needs help," she said. "We provide food, temporary shelter, clothing, counseling, medical and transportation assistance to youths in crisis."
