Celebrating Panda Cares Day!

Today, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU is celebrating Panda Cares Day!

Following the establishment of its inaugural Panda Cares Day™ in 2019, Panda Cares®, the philanthropic arm of Panda Express®, commemorates its anniversary on August 8 every year with a celebration of giving back. Today, we’re celebrating this incredible partnership and the impact it has had on our community.

Since 2007, Panda Express has raised funds for local childen’s hospitals across the country through its partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. By asking every guest to round-up at the register, placing donation boxes in-store, engaging in the associate (employee) giving campaign, and fundraising with corporate partners through their annual golf tournament, Panda is one of the highest-giving corporate partners CMN Hospitals has. In 2020, even with ongoing impacts to the restaurant industry, Panda Express guests and associates raised more than $22M for CMN Hospitals, helping the organization change kids’ health and change the future.

Panda Express has supported Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU since 2010 and has raised over $235,400. In a single year, more than 60,000 children receive care at CHoR, and partners like Panda ensure that these children have world class pediatric health care close to home, right here in Central Virginia. We continue to be so grateful for Panda Express who in many ways they address mental, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of children, bringing them courage and hope to heal and thrive.
