Fund Created for Family of Ofc. TJ Bomba

"TJ" Bomba, known to many in downtown Silver Spring, died early last Monday morning.  He left behind his wife and two sons.  The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has set up a fund to help the family of Officer Bomba. A true charitable organization, the all-volunteer FOP gives 100% of all donated funds directly to benefit the family.  Those wishing to make a donation may do so by following the instructions here.
