Joseph Giardina: Making a Difference Wherever He Goes

It doesn’t have to be Christmas for Joseph Giardina, the president of North Castle Insurance Agency in Armonk-North Castle, New York, for him to give back in the biggest ways. His family is also involved in the exciting charity work that he has been doing for years. It really all started almost fifteen years ago when he provided the annual Westchester Christmas dinner, an annual dinner for 350 guests from homeless shelters across the county, 40 hams and 40 turkeys. Thinking back, he remembered seeing a flyer on St. Mary’s Church for donations and impulsively volunteered to donate all of the meat needed for the event. “I’ve been doing this ever since. I think it’s really important to give back what you can to those in need,” Joseph Giardina says.

At the time, he wasn’t sure how he was going to meet the donation he made so rashly. “I was a young dad with a new business and it wasn’t the wisest decision,” states Joseph Giardina. “But, I knew it was the right thing to do. It started one of the best family traditions we have now.”

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.”


Joseph Giardina is always looking for ways to help out; his most passionate issue is homelessness. “It could happen to anyone, no matter their financial situation, so I really like to focus on this issue the most and make sure that I can do something about it.”

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.”

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.”

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.”
