The Malta House Thrift Store, downtown Huntington, held a ribbon cutting officially opening the store for business on Monday, December 20. The proceeds from the store help support the Malta House Emergency Boarding House, a faith based shelter for homeless men in Huntington County and the surrounding areas located at 505 S. Jefferson Street.

Shown cutting the ribbon are Jason Fields, board member and Judy Ruble, thrift store manager. At left in the black leather coat is Pastor Kellie Herber, director of the Malta House. The Malta House Thrift Store offers a temporary living program for men over the age of 18 years.

Residents must have a valid picture ID and agree to a background check. Those involved in the Malta House program are subject to the rules and procedures set up for the house. Residents are expected to be involved in the basic care and upkeep of the Malta House, attend Chapel services and other pertinent classes. The thrift store welcomes donations of good used clothing and shoes, furniture, appliances, and household items.
