Panda Express Donates Masks #ForTheKids

As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting medical professionals on the frontlines in Wisconsin, Panda Express® has donated 1,920 KN95 Particulate Respirators and 18,000 Single-use Surgical Masks to Children’s Wisconsin as protection when treating kids and families.

“On behalf of all the caregivers who work on the frontlines, we are grateful for these much-needed masks from our long-time partner Panda Express,” said Teri Nestel, interim president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Panda’s generosity has never been more needed or more appreciated during these challenging times. It’s comforting to know that these doctors and nurses have the needed resources necessary to care for those who depend on children’s hospitals now and into the future.”

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, like ours, in this time of need as well as supporting research to find a treatment for COVID-19. In addition, participating Panda Express locations are offering a 10 percent appreciation discount on in-store purchases for healthcare workers and first responders. In the midst of this public health crisis, Panda remains steadfast to its evergreen mission of protecting, inspiring and bettering the communities they serve.

Many of the kids in our care, like our cancer and heart patients, have compromised immune systems – putting them at greater risk if exposed to COVID-19. Thanks to Panda’s generous support, we can continue to enact additional measures to prevent the spread of the virus, protect our most vulnerable patients, and do what we do best: care for kids.

Children’s Wisconsin is proud to partner with Panda Express and is grateful for their continued support. In 2019, Panda Express associates and guests donated over $225,000 to Children’s Wisconsin to help us care for the well-being of children across the state.
