Meet the Chore Volunteers - Tom!

Tom Veit joined the Thursday, Chore Van #1 crew 5 years ago, after a career in client service and marketing.  In addition to Chore,  Tom actively volunteers with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate for Foster Children) and St. Elizabeth’s Food Ministry, which feeds the poor by redistributing food from local Bergen County supermarkets/stores to food pantries in Paterson, such as Eva’s Kitchen, CUMAC and Oasis, a haven for women and children.  He enjoys fishing, hiking and kayaking.  “I volunteer for Chore because helping the elderly makes me feel good.  It’s not just fixing things for our clients—it is also listening and engaging with them that is rewarding.  I also enjoy the camaraderie of my co-workers.  We are a diverse group with a shared, common goal-- to help the elderly and disabled in Bergen County.”
