Rick Amato has been a part of the Thursday, Chore Van #3 crew for the past 8 years. Previously, he worked professionally as a draftsman for Florian Greenhouses in West Milford. When his sons were growing up, he was a stay at home dad and was very happy to be a big part of his children’s school and after school lives. Once they graduated high school, he made the choice to spend time volunteering. A friend who was involved with the Bergen Volunteer Center suggested Chore because of Rick’s love of doing home improvements. When he is not volunteering, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, and all types of fishing—freshwater, saltwater and ice fishing. “I work with Chore because I believe that using the talents God gave me to help others is a gift. I am thankful for the opportunity to help seniors—what we do for them truly makes their lives easier.”
