For the past 5 years, Nunzio Garzino has been volunteering for Chore with the Thursday, Chore Van #2 crew. Prior to his retirement, he was a Senior Vice President/Branch Manager for Prudential Financial, Thompson McKinnon Securities and Wachovia Securities. His financial career spanned 44 years. He loves to play golf, and is out on the golf course two or three times a week, sometimes participating in tournaments and club championships. He considers himself a ‘jack of all trades’ when it comes to handyman skills. He and his wife also volunteer at their local church.
“I could say that I volunteer for Chore because it gives me something to do, but the reality is that I enjoy helping other people. How many times have we received compliments from widows and widowers—I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count them all. We hear comments from our clients such as: ‘Oh, I only owe $36 for two grab bars installed by Chore? I called a local handyman and he wanted to charge me $300 for the first grab bar, and $150 more for the second one. Being of service is what keeps me coming back week after week and year after year. Plus all the Chore volunteers are great to work with, especially the ones on my Thursday crew.”
