Anna Hippie, of Joplin, claps with the rest of the crowd after Convoy of Hope representatives announce their plans to build 12 new homes in Joplin for residents who lost homes to the May 22, 2012, tornado. The announcement was made Monday morning near the intersection of 26th Street and Bird Avenue. Hippie said she has been volunteering in the debris zone for the past six months.
