Celebrate Panda Cares Day with Panda Express on August 8 and Help Carilion Children’s

Carilion Children’s is excited to celebrate Panda Cares Day on August 8!

Why? Because Panda Express is hosting a one-day virtual fundraiser for area kids treated in Southwest Virginia!

On August 5-8, place your order on the Panda Express mobile app or the Panda Express website at using the promo code “PandaCaresDay,” and Panda Express will donate 28 percent of online sales to Carilion Children’s.

Donations collected year-round at local Panda Express locations help kids like 12-year-old Hayden, from Roanoke, VA. Hayden has been diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), which means he has a hole in the diaphragm that allows organs from the abdomen to move to the chest cavity, restricting lung growth. Furthermore, it was predicted that Hayden would have less than a 5 percent chance of survival. It’s safe to say Hayden is beating the odds in every way possible. <3

Hayden’s mom, Ashley, is so grateful for the many services Hayden receives at Carilion Children’s. The physicians, residents, and medical students work tirelessly with Haden’s parents to help give Hayden the care he deserves and the treatment he needs to keep him playing with his brothers and friends!

Since 2015, Panda Express has donated over $15,000 to Carilion Children’s. These funds help kids in our community by transforming how we meet the most urgent needs, save more lives, and protect our collective future. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Panda Express has donated over 12,000 masks to Carilion Clinic and Carilion Children’s to keep our frontline heroes safe.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, August 8. Because of Panda Cares Day, every online order of your favorite Panda Express meal will help Arkansas Children’s champion children by making them better today and healthier tomorrow.

And don’t forget, on August 5-8, visit or the Panda Express mobile app to place your order. Be sure to use the promo code “PandaCaresDay” to donate 28 percent of your order to help deliver kid-savvy, life-saving care to kids at Arkansas Children’s.
