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 children’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.


Since 2013, Panda Express has raised over $240,000 for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. The six locations across Eastern Tennessee support the hospital year-round by asking their customers to donate at the register.


Amid the pandemic, Panda Express also supported Children’s Hospital by provided necessary PPE to keep the hospital staff safe. Thank you, Panda Express, for being a huge supporter of Children’s Hospital!
