30-Day "Sprint to AAHOACON" Campaign to Raise New Funds and Be Fueled by a Red Roof Donation

USA, Columbus, Ohio. July 01, 2021

Red Roof®, the leader in economy lodging, has announced the launch of a month-long fundraising campaign to accelerate its support for the work of Leuva Patidar Samaj of USA (LPS) and its Leuva Patidar Samaj of USA COVID Relief India Project 2021, as the organization works to provide support for hospitals in Gujarat, India province which have been impacted by the devastating effects of the COVID pandemic.

The new campaign, which will run throughout the month of July, will be seeded by a Red Roof donation of $10,000. Red Roof will encourage its franchise partners, vendors, and the entire industry to join them in supporting LPS by making donations. The culmination will be a final check presentation to leaders of the organization at the upcoming AAHOACON conference in Dallas, August 3-6, 2021.

"We are delighted to launch this Sprint to AAHOACON fundraising drive to help LPS support the hospitals of Gujarat province," said George Limbert, interim President of Red Roof. "Red Roof has been active in its support of LPS for many years and we see this as an excellent opportunity to help the organization lay a foundation for future fundraising efforts as it, and the world, transition to the next stage of COVID recovery. We encourage those with whom we have a relationship, and the industry at large, to join us in these efforts to support families who are working to rebuild their futures."

Nayana (Nancy) Patel (Soyani), President of the LPS of USA Board and a leader in the Red Roof Franchise community, said, "We are deeply appreciative of the leadership being shown by Red Roof to shine a spotlight on the tremendous needs in Gujarat province during this month-long fundraising blitz. As the population transitions from the first wave of COVID to a new phase, the needs have never been greater. This includes help in securing oxygen plants and the ability to help provide additional medical equipment and supplies to those that have been admitted to the supported hospitals and whose lives have been devastated by the impact of the pandemic." She concluded, "As we in the U.S. hotel community come together in a month's time to mark our own progress and celebrate our industry's recovery, I join Red Roof leadership in urging individuals throughout the industry to offer their support during this critical time, to help Gujarat province recover, re-establish normal life and build a positive future."

Food & Beverage: Necessity Breeds Invention

Hotel restaurants were not immune to the devastation that Covid caused in the food & beverage industry last year. In order to survive, many operations expanded their services to include packaged food sales, prepared meals to go, mini pop-up grocery stores, meal kits, takeout, and delivery to make up for lost revenues. These hybrid operations have become increasingly popular in hotels because they maximize limited F&B space and also attract local business. In those restaurants where customers are willing to dine in, there is a greater emphasis on safety protocols. Tables and chairs are spaced far enough apart to provide a sense of safety and comfort between parties. There are also stricter cleaning and disinfecting practices occurring in between dining encounters. In addition, there is a greater emphasis on outdoor dining with its offer of fresh air. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to manage their F&B operations in the wake of the pandemic.
