Patrick Costello Legacy Build
A volunteering campaign for Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity.
About This Campaign
A ground breaking ceremony was held at 10:00 a.m. Friday, September 22 at 633 N. Locust Street in Green Bay.
Not only does this mark Habitat’s 107th home in Brown County, but also celebrates the life of Patrick Costello. Costello, who passed away last year, was a regular volunteer at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and sat on the Family Services Committee and was also a board member at Neighborworks.
Habitat has been working in partnership with the Costello family on this build from the beginning.
Habitat was approached by Patrick’s son, Bill Costello, an architect by trade, who wanted to design and build a home in honor of his father. From this idea, the legacy build became reality.
“Habitat is honored to build this home in Patrick’s honor, and also in his neighborhood. His legacy has touched the lives of many in our community, and our hope is that his caring spirit is passed on to our newest Habitat homeowners,” stated Executive Director Cora Haltaufderheid.
