A small army of volunteers with Yuma's Habitat for Humanity lift an exterior wall into place at the soon to be rebuilt home of Tony Gianopoulos, located at 1055 La Casita Drive, Wednesday morning. Gianopoulos, 79, lost his home and most of his belongings to a fire on December 9, 2012. Since then the Yuma Community has opened its heart and pockets to Gianopoulos donating money, furnishings, clothing, services and more to help him get back on his feet.
