Jackson-Keller receives book donation from best western

book donation

Ajay and Nimisha Patel along with fellow managers gather with Jackson-Keller principal, Anna Nicolai, Clifford and students.

Just in time for the holidays, the owners of three local Best Westerns donated a book for each 1st grader at Jackson-Keller Elementary. Ajay and Nimisha Patel and the managers of their three locations partnered with Scholastic to make the donation possible.

"We really just want to do something for the kids in our community," said Nimisha Patel. "I want to teach my little boy that it's important to give back--especially at this time of year."

Jackson-Keller principal Anna Nicolai gave an animated rendition of the book, "Clifford saves Christmas" while the actual big red dog tiptoed into the library.

Managers Erik Garcia, Amado Lamas and Kenny Kumar passed out the books while Clifford gave hugs and high fives.

The Patels own Best Western Plus Hill Country Suites, Best Western Plus Atrea Hotel & Suites and Best Western Plus Palo Alto Inn & Suites.
