Photo detail

Gary Penny stands inside the can cottage and hands bags of aluminum cans to John Yovich to toss into the box truck on Wednesday. Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and using his personal truck, Yovich started picking up the cans 10 years ago and a few years later graduated to the enclosed truck. Penny has been helping with this project for three years. There are several collection spots around Jefferson City and surrounding communities and over the years, enough money has been raised to build one home.
