Ernesto's friends

Anyone that has met Ernesto knows him as a descent, giving and honest person.  I remember when Ernie worked for me over 15 years ago full of energy and always going an extra mile to help ANYONE in need, it did not matter to him if it was a customer or an employee’s friend that needed help.  One thing was sure that you could count on him.

Ernesto was born in Brooklyn New York from Puerto Rican parents and later moved to Puerto Rico where he was raised. He studied and received his college degree in Puerto Rico where he still has family and great amazing friends. Ernie came to USA by the end of 1999.  Ernesto has worked at wonderful places of which the one that he holds very close to him has been Wendy's because of the great people that he met there.  Then his journey to him to  CRT community Renewal Team (A non-profit organization) for almost 10 years.   There he provided his services and worked with seniors.  Lately Ernie has been working with CMHA here in New Britain part of a great group as an Employment Specialist.

He recently suffered a stroke and his journey has changed.  He was hospitalized and is now recovering but needs lots of prayers along with some financial help to deal with all the expenses that come with a tragedy like this.  I request everyone reading this to Please send prayers and donate to help him through this.  

Let's all pull together and show Ernesto Rios that even during these tough times we have got each other’s back.
