George Cronin Presented with 2016 Bishop Charles E. Herzig Humanitarian Award
George Cronin, area coordinator for the Texas Ramp Project’s Tyler region in East Texas, has been awarded the 2016 Bishop Charles E. Herzig Humanitarian Award from the Catholic Diocese of Tyler. George has headed up the Tyler Ramp Project for over six years and overseen construction of more than 400 free wheelchair ramps for elderly and disabled people in financial need. Also honored was the late Louis Owen of Tyler, whose foundation has funded the East Texas Ramp Project for the past several years.
Building Freedom for the Homebound
Have you ever changed a person’s life in a single day? The Texas Ramp Project does it hundreds of times a year! We build wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly people who can’t afford to buy one. In a few hours on a Saturday morning, we give these folks the freedom to leave their home again—the home where they want to remain but whose steps have imprisoned them.
