Celebrating Panda Express and Lunar New Year with Renown Children’s Hospital

We invite you to join us February 10, 2024, in celebrating the start of the Lunar New Year. Lunar New Year is all about togetherness and it is a time when family and friends gather to feast and welcome the new year.  

In 2023, Panda Express associates and guests donated more than $20 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, bringing the total to more than $150M over the lifetime of this partnership. It is through Panda Express’ commitment that Renown Children’s Hospital, is able to provide the most impactful care to kids when it is needed most.   

Please join us, along with the Panda Express associates and fellow patrons, in celebrating this Lunar New Year by visiting a local Panda Express and making a donation.  When one of their associates asks to round-up at the register, know that your donation stays local and will assist Renown Children’s Hospital with programs that support the whole child, including their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.  A direct example of donor dollars at work, are Panda Cares Centers of Hope.  These spaces are designed to be environments that reduce stress, promote healing and comfort so kids can be kids.
