Donna Lazetera, a Cook at the Holiday Inn Mount Kisco, said “I would like to extend my gratitude to Roedel Companies and our GM Stephen Patton for taking care of their employees in times like these.

We continue to stay positive and hope this ends soon, so we can all come back to our jobs and our work families.”
Kaylee Petersen, Breakfast Server at Hilton Garden Inn Manchester said “It’s honestly so amazing the time and dedication put into these home cooked meals.
