Giving Back to the Community Is At The Heart Of Lotus Management, Inc.
September 20, 2019 -- Lotus Management Inc., a family owned hospitality company specializing in hotel development and management, has celebrated several accomplishments this year including a 40-year celebration and the opening of two new construction franchised hotels. Despite these successes, Lotus Management Inc. keeps giving back to the community at the core of their values.
Lotus Management, Inc. conducted a 2-day Leadership Meeting with their leadership team and used this forum to purchase and compile 85 backpacks filled with school supplies to kids in need. “The backpacks will ensure an educational advantage for some of the school area children” said Katki Patel, Director of Finance at Lotus Management, Inc. “School supplies included 3-ring binders, colored markers, pencils, paper, glue sticks, rulers, calculators and other items to assure the children have what is needed to meet their school year obligations, and, help to ease the financial burden that many families face at the beginning of each school year.”
“Santa Cruz County is the second highest county with children in need - at more than 27% among California’s 58 counties, coupled with relatively lower incomes reflecting low-wage jobs within the agriculture and tourism industries. We felt an overwhelming desire to help the children of a community that hosts a majority of our hotels.” said Patel “Promoting and supporting education was a cornerstone philosophical belief of our company’s founder, Jayantibhai Patel, and as the third generation, we want to continue to promote this value.”
The Santa Cruz County Office of Education reports a need of over 2,000 backpacks annually for children in need each school year. So far this year, the Santa Cruz County Office of Education reports they have had donations of about 1,800 backpacks. Lotus Management Inc. has strong values which align with the current mission of the Santa Cruz County Office of Education and is humbled by the opportunity to continue to build on their valuable work in the community.
“Lotus Management, Inc. would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who participated in this journey. Each contribution, from the management to line-staff level, has enabled us to develop a purposeful and well-considered opportunity for the children of Santa Cruz County.” said Patel.
Lotus Management, Inc. continues to support educational components through the Lotus Foundation including construction of schools, which facilitate opportunities for learning in Africa, India, and the United States; coordinates group volunteer efforts for charitable community programs by sponsoring and/or providing food and supplies to various events; and, coordinates youth accommodations for students seeking higher education by matching students abroad and in the United States with residential accommodations.
