Business roundup: Helping the Less Fortunate Ministries opens indoor yard sale

Helping the Less Fortunate Ministries has opened an indoor yard sale at its 1305 Richard St. building.
The yard sale, which will remain up indefinitely and is open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., includes more than 3,000 items, such as furniture and appliances.
Billie Ozment, vice president of the ministry, said proceeds from the yard sale will go to build a survival skills training center for people who are homeless.
The center will provide housing and skills training until people who are homeless are able to find jobs and support themselves on their own.
The ministry has plans for a 20,000 square-foot building near the current building. Construction will start Jan. 1 if all goes according to plan, Ozment said. She said the property is currently owned by KMD Construction but Helping the Less Fortunate Ministries is in talks with the construction company to get the land.
