What a wonderful day to celebrate the selection of Patty Bomba as the Crusader Award winner for 2019. Patty Bomba, of Carneys Point, has touched many lives through her advocacy for individuals with disabilities. She spearheaded the creation of A Place for Sami (an accessible playground built by the community that benefits anyone with mobility issues) including her granddaughter, Sami. Patty currently serves on the board of Resources for Independent Living, is a past chairperson of the Salem County Disabilities Advisory Board and she is active in fundraising for the ARC Walk, Special Olympics, Resources for Independent Living and Darryl’s Wheels.
