Amigos de Los Ninos disbands
The Amigos de Los Ninos, which has supported children in the North County for more than 55 years, is sadly disbanding. Its main source of income has been a Thrift Shop first opened in Paso Robles and then moved to San Miguel several years ago. Store equipment will be given to the Boys and Girls Club of North SLO County, which plans to open its own thrift store. Los Ninos’ last day in business is Friday, Aug. 26. Everything in the store is on sale. They are no longer taking donations. They are grateful to their many volunteers and customers for their many years of support.
