Meet the Chore Volunteers - Lee!

Lee McQuade joined Chore 5 years ago, after a career in Marketing, Sales and Training.  He also continues to work part time, and will be completing his 15th year with Enterprise Fleet Leasing.  He volunteers his time with the Clean Water Cleanup Association.  When not volunteering or working, Lee enjoys   gardening, flying, sailing and hiking and is a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association and the Hackensack River Canoe and Kayak Club.  Lee enjoys volunteering with Chore for the chance to help out elderly neighbors, the enjoyment of being with his Friday, Van #1 crew, and the opportunity to increase his personal  knowledge of ‘Do-It-Yourself’ projects.  “The clients are very appreciative of Chore activities in Bergen County.  Some even have baked goods for us.  We enjoy listening to the clients’ personal  stories of  their own backgrounds and past working experiences.” 

Through grants from the Bergen County Division of Senior Services and Office of Community Development as well as from corporations, foundations and individual donations, Chore operates three vans and has 45 volunteers.  Crews, comprised of a driver and from one to three volunteers, are on the road every business day year round.
