Panda Cares for Orlando Health Heroes

Panda Express is a long-time supporter of Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, and their dedication to supporting our patients and community is seen daily through their fundraising efforts at restaurants across Central Florida.

Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to Panda Cares, the philanthropic arm of Panda Express, for their ongoing commitment to supporting medical professionals on the frontlines in Central Florida. Last month, Panda Express donated 40,000 surgical masks to Orlando Health Arnold Palmer to ensure the safety of our patients and caregivers, as well as meals to feed 200 of our frontline workers in the Emergency Department and ICUs at Orlando Health ORMC.

“Supporting the healthcare 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 percent appreciation discount on in-store purchases for healthcare workers and first responders with their employment badge.

Through 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 Express remains steadfast to its evergreen mission of protecting, inspiring and bettering the communities they serve.

Thank you Panda Express for caring for our Orlando Health Heroes and our community!
