Libby Kirkpatrick (pictured here) first got involved with Habitat Metro Denver around 2005, when she volunteered with a couple friends at Habitat’s ReStore.
Soon, her son Taylor was volunteering on construction sites, and he joined Habitat’s Board of Directors in 2008.
Libby’s investment in Habitat’s mission continued throughout her life, and, sadly, culminated with a transformational donation at the time of her passing through a bequest in her will. “We are proud and honored as a family that we are leaving, in quiet ways, a lasting legacy on the communities where we live and work through philanthropic support of organizations we love.”
