Eclipse Party 2017

August 21, 2017 was an exciting day to be in Greenville, South Carolina!  Thousands of visitors, many from other states or countries, traveled to Greenville to experience a total solar eclipse as Greenville was one of few cities directly in the path of totality.  J.Freeman & Associates staff, family and local clients were excited to witness this incredible event.  We snacked on Moon Pies, Sun Chips, Sunkist soda and Eclipse gum while waiting for the eclipse, and most of us tried out the conference bike.  “Amazing”, “Incredible” and “Spectacular” were a few of the descriptions given of the 2 minutes of totality. We all are so thankful to have been part of this once-in-a-lifetime event! To see more pictures click HERE.

School Tools Program 2016

Many thanks to those clients of J. Freeman & Associates who generously donated school supplies for United Way’s School Tools 2016! These supplies will be distributed to local schools to help our area students have a successful school year. Last year over 2,462 students received backpacks and school supplies at the biggest United Way School Tools distribution since inception! These students were from 112 schools and head start programs in our community and their annual average household income was $17,740. We were overwhelmed by the response-thank you!!
