About the Abundance Shop
The Abundance Shop provides Los Osos with a way to recycle and reuse household items and clothing. It is also a friendly stopping off point for those who want a warm welcome and a chance to chat. Run entirely by volunteers, the income goes to support the mission and ministry of St. Benedict’s, and to local non-profits chosen by the volunteer group. These have included Woods Humane Society, Prado Day Center, Senior Nutrition, Feline Network, Canterbury Club, and Hopes Village.
