Panda Express recently donated 16,320 KN95 masks and 335 meals to protect, fuel and say thanks to our health care workers in Sioux Falls. The longtime partner of Children’s Miracle Network at Sanford Children’s also gave 16,320 KN95 masks to support medical professionals in Fargo.
“Supporting the health care community has always been a priority for Panda Express, and we are blessed to have a partner with shared values of giving and inspiring better lives,” said Dr. Peggy Cherng, co-founder and co-CEO of Panda Restaurant Group. “It is our privilege to be able to protect and provide comfort to the selfless hospital staff and patients at CMN Hospitals. We thank our guests and associates for their generosity and support that make these donations possible. We stand together to be stronger together.”
For the rest of the year, participating Panda Express locations are offering a 10% appreciation discount on in-store purchases for health care workers and first responders with their employment badge.
Through its philanthropic arm Panda Cares, Panda Express has created a COVID-19 Community Care Fund, in which all guest donations are put towards sourcing and providing PPE to local hospitals in this time of need as well as supporting research to find a treatment for COVID-19. In the midst of this public health crisis, Panda remains steadfast to its evergreen mission of protecting, inspiring and bettering the communities they serve.
Thank you for your support!
