Advocacy is a way of life for Yale Freeman who has also assumed the role of advocate for those less fortunate in our community. He served on the Board of the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida for ten years, including three years as president. He also served on the Board of the United Way of Collier County, and currently supports the Collier County American Cancer Society. In addition, he contributes to a wide range of community and professional organizations, as well as various worthy causes.

A recent Naples Illustrated profile of Mr. Freeman (click link to left) speaks of his commitment to our community.

American Cancer Society

Seventeen Naples law firms recently participated in a flash mob to support the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer “Put On Your Pink Bra” campaign to end breast cancer. The organizer, Yale Freeman got other firms on board and worked out the logistics for the big event. Guerilla Media filmed the “happening” and created this fantastic video. The goal: to raise awareness and garner support. Mission accomplished!
