When you love what you do, you enjoy more of your life. Joseph Giardina, the president of North Castle Insurance Agency in Armonk-North Castle, New York, knows just what he wants when it comes to his job and life. By mixing his passion for volunteer and charity work, he is able to do more in his job in insurance and with his philanthropy and volunteering.
Joseph Giardina looks to work for many charities, supports food banks, and donates financially to organizations that align his goals for community support. One of his biggest giveaways started fifteen years ago at St. Mary’s Church. “I saw a flyer that said they needed donations for a banquet that they were planning, and my first instinct was to donate 40 hams and 40 turkeys.”
Since then, Joseph Giardina and his family have been annually donating hams and turkeys to that banquet for the last fifteen years. “I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make the donation because I was a new dad and I was trying to start up my business. I knew it was the right thing to do,” he explains. “But, it turned into the best decisions and our favorite holiday tradition.”
Another great example of his charity work is him being a Board member of the Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation. The Foundation is led by the founder Denise Rich and has very similar goals as Joseph Giardina. “There is so much suffering in the world and my goals are very aligned with this organization,” he says. “Too many people, adults and children, are hurting and struggling with cancers and terminal illnesses and have to find more effective treatments. I love serving for the mission, truly.”

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.”
