Ernie, an Army veteran, is an important part of the Knoxville Habitat family, serving on our Restore staff.
It is obvious that giving back to his others is very important to Ernie, as seen through his military service and continued dedication to the Habitat mission.
After recently celebrating his seventh year with the ReStore, he says “this is the best job I’ve ever had.”
Ernie takes great pride in his position as the Appliance Tester for the Knoxville Habitat ReStore. By making sure that each and every donated appliance is clean and in working condition, Ernie helps create a sense of trust between the ReStore and their customers. When buying an appliance from the ReStore, customers know that it has been “Ernie Approved.” He painstakingly makes sure that each and every appliance looks and operates its best.
The sense of pride that Ernie has for the ReStore extends beyond just appliances, saying that it is the “best place in town to shop… not just for appliances, but for everything.”
