In addition to being a part of the Wednesday, Chore Van # 2 crew for the past 8 years, Tim Africano also spends time volunteering at his town’s elementary school, tutoring 4th graders in math, spelling and science, in addition to volunteering at Holy Name Hospital where he helps out by transporting patients and running various other errands for different departments throughout the hospital.
When he is not volunteering, Tim enjoys long distance running, reading and playing with his Old English Sheepdog.
“Chore ultimately is an expression of love toward our neighbors in the community. To be a part of a program that keeps vulnerable people safe in their homes at no cost to them other than that of the supplies is amazing and awesome. I volunteer for Chore because I enjoy using various tools, working with my hands to complete projects in a professional manner, and for the incredible camaraderie I feel towards my fellow crew members. We once helped a young woman who had no use of her legs. This made me realize how lucky I am to be healthy and able-bodied.”
To celebrate this incredibly impactful program that enables thousands of seniors and disabled individuals to live safely and independently in their homes, please join us at the 40th Anniversary of Chore BeefsteakDinner!
