When people think of insurance agents, they don’t usually think about volunteer work and giving back. However, when you think of Joseph Giardina, the president of North Castle Insurance Agency in Armonk-North Castle, New York, you can safely associate him with big changes, and generous charity work. He stands out at work and also in his volunteer work and financial donations when he isn’t there. “I always make the time to do what I’m called to even if my job is demanding,” he says.
Joseph Giardina is extremely passionate about his job but also how fulfilling and helping it can be. “Work might be difficult to juggle with my family and my volunteer work, but you have to look at how you can better help your community and help those that are at a disadvantage,” he says. “Homelessness weighs on me the most, so my family and I definitely work to make sure that homeless shelters and soup kitchens are taken care of.”
He and his family shared these values, which is why every Christmas, Joseph Giardina and his family look forward to the annual Westchester Christmas Dinner. For fifteen years, they have been donating 40 hams and 40 turkeys to the shelter to serve over 350 homeless guests from around the country. “It’s a blast getting to go shopping with my wife and daughter and then bring it all into the kitchen. It’s what makes the holiday come alive.”
The other cause that Joseph Giardina believes deeply in is finding more effective treatments for lymphoma, leukemia, and other related cancers. “So many people suffer from these cruel diseases,” he says, reflecting. “It is especially heartbreaking to see children struggle from them. It’s why I became a Board member for Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation, led by founder Denise Rich. I wanted to become an advocate for these inspiring cancer patients and do what I can to improve their treatment options.”

For twenty years, he has been advising clients on how to choose the best insurance policies for their needs. “It’s been a great career,” Joseph Giardina says. “I meet people at pivotal times of their lives. Some are excited about buying their first home but unsure how to protect their investment. Some are teens who just got a car and are learning the responsibilities that come with it. No matter the situation, my team and I sit down with each client and help them be sure they know exactly what they are purchasing.”
North Castle Insurance Agency’s extensive life insurance policies
Life insurance is one of the top three policies that Joe’s clients buy. “It’s a very wise decision,” he says, “because while we would all like to live forever, none of us will. What will happen to your loved ones if the worst happens? This is especially important if you are the primary breadwinner or have children. This was true for one of my clients, who died suddenly when he was only 30 years old or so. His wife suddenly had no means to support herself, and she had young children to care for. Because he had purchased a life insurance policy with us, I was able to give her a $500,000 check at his funeral. That brought her peace of mind for their financial future even though the money could never bring her husband back.”
North Castle Insurance Agency’s homeowners insurance
If the key to a new home brings the purchaser excitement, then homeowners insurance brings peace of mind. “A home – be it a condo, a house, an RV, or a trailer – is such an enormous investment and responsibility that no one should be without homeowners insurance,” says Joe. “The policies do, unfortunately, contain a lot of complex terms that can make anyone’s eyes cross. Never be afraid to ask us questions at North Castle Insurance Agency. We will do everything we can to help you have a thorough understanding of what you’re purchasing.”
North Castle Insurance Agency’s additional insurance policies
Additionally, North Castle Insurance Agency offers expertly managed insurance policies for car, umbrella liability, boats/yachts, commercial property, workers’ compensation, and business automobile. “We are a full-service insurance agency for individuals, businesses, and families,” states Joseph Giardina. “We can help you purchase a reliable, reasonably priced policy that fits your situation.”
