A Comfortable Contribution

Blogger's Note: The following was submitted by the owners of the Comfort Inn & Suites in Pottstown.

Brothers Mayur Chheda and Mital Chheda, principals of the Infinity Hotel Group, LLC (headquartered in Atco, N.J.), and owners of the Comfort Inn & Suites Pottstown/Limerick, committed their support to the 26th annual holiday toy and food drive to benefit underprivileged families in the Pottstown area.

“Since the hotel was built in 1989, the Comfort Inn & Suites in Pottstown has always been involved in the community. Since we purchased the hotel, and following its subsequent $1.5 million make-over in 2009-2010, we’ve stepped-up that commitment,” said hotel owner Mayur Chheda. 

“We understand how important it is for businesses to support their communities, so we’ve pledged 65 gallons of milk, 65 five-pound bags of potatoes, 65 loaves of bread, and 65 containers of butter,” added Mital Chheda, Mayur’s brother and business partner.

The community effort is being organized, once again, by local citizen, Jim Frymoyer.

Frymoyer began the tradition as a member of the Moose Lodge, and is continuing it with the Manatawny Association, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles N0. 626. The goal is to touch the lives of over 300 people in the area this year.

The toys are delivered at a party held for the children at the Norco Fire Company.

The hotel is also organizing an ‘angel tree’ at the hotel, and encouraging their team of hospitality professionals (room attendants, guest service agents, maintenance personnel, and management) along with their guests to bring gifts to the hotel for needy children. 

Al Patel, the hotel’s General Manager, said, “we are so fortunate and so blessed, and we feel a special obligation during the winter holiday season to share our blessings with those in need – especially in making the holidays a little more special for the families and children in the area.”

Jon Ray, maintenance director at the hotel, has been working with the Manatawny Association that

distributes the food and toys for a number of years, and is grateful for the generosity of the hotels ownership, management, and staff. 

“In the hospitality business, and at the Comfort Inn Pottstown, we’re all about making people happy,” he said, “and this year will be extra special. I am glad that my owners and co-workers are equally sharing in the spirit.”
Infinity Hotel Group owns and manages a collection of properties, including Comfort Inn, Pottstown, PA; Comfort Inn, Galloway, NJ; Quality Inn, Galloway, NJ; Best Western, Williamstown, NJ; Travelers Lodge, Atco, NJ. 

Four additional hotels in the Marriott and IHG brand families are also under development.
