Panda Express donates 20,000 KN95 masks and food to VCU Health

To help protect medical professionals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, Panda Express has donated nearly 20,000 KN95 Particulate Respirator and single-use surgical masks to help provide protection when treating those in need in the Richmond community. In addition to donating masks, Panda also delivered up to 200 meals to our frontline staff at VCU Health and Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU who work around-the-clock caring for our community.

“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 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.
