Freeway Insurance Services, Troy Location Sees Its Donations At Work



Over the past four years the Troy location of Freeway Insurance Services has made donations to a number of charities.  It is a rarity we get to meet the individual who is impacted by our donations.

George Gorman who suffers from MS; comes to the office yearly to collect for the annual "MS Walk" taking place Sunday May 20, 2018. Prior to meeting us, George was almost completely paralyzed. Today he is able to have almost total mobility. He came in recently to thank us and was kind enough to take his photo with the team.

Each year his condition has improved, his smile brighter, and our visits longer. He refers business to our office for insurance - and we continue to support him in his fight.
