Meet the dedicated group of people that makes everything possible.
Pastor Pasquale is an “opportunity-creator” who enjoys nothing more than to be deeply involved at every level. Pasquale is a licensed contractor and gifted stonemason who has been self-employed for his entire life. Much of his work has been displayed in magazines such as Home and Garden and Architectural Digest. He built a mansion for Carl Icahn, and has done stonework for many of the rich and famous. Pasquale has established and grown two other businesses, including an irrigation company which he sold but still carries his name. That company is now one of the largest and most profitable in Westchester County. Pasquale left his thriving landscaping company with over a dozen employees to build Giving Tree Global. Pasquale is also an ordained pastor.
Colin is currently a sophomore at Fordham University. He uses his innovative business mind to create new business endeavors that help Giving Tree Global adapt to a constantly changing world. He created the Giving Tree Global eBay initiative and has overseen all technology at Giving Tree Global. Colin directed the redevelopment of the website in 2019 and the transition of Giving Tree Global to a more tech-friendly organization. One of his biggest talents is continually implementing new systems to create more efficient practices.
Zach is currently a sophomore at Yale University intending to study Economics. His love for the environment and sustainability was partly a result of his food rescue efforts as a member of the founding family of the Bread of Life. He spearheaded the Bread of Life Green Initiative, which includes recycling programs for cardboard and plastic waste and fundraising efforts to purchase energy-efficient appliances and reusable bags. Zach has pursued his passion for sustainability through engineering, non-profit consulting, and public policy as an intern to the United Nations. In addition to his many other roles, Zach was instrumental in establishing new approaches to fund-raising and spearheading economic initiatives.
