Panda Express will donate $1 from the sale of every 3-entrée plate at all locations from Monday, May 19 to Sunday, June 1, to help victims of the China earthquake and Myanmar cyclone. Money raised from this campaign will be donated to the American Red Cross China Relief Fund and the Tzu Chi Foundation, a relief organization dedicated to helping all people.

"We are extremely saddened by the devastation and lives lost in China and Myanmar," says Peggy Cherng, co-chairman of Panda Restaurant Group, Inc., the parent company for Panda Express. "Not only is the world community affected by these disasters, but many of our associates have experienced very personal tragedies as a result, so we are deeply committed to supporting the relief efforts."

Panda Restaurant Group has committed to raising up to $800,000 through the in-store fundraiser. An additional $100,000 will be raised by PRG’s 18,000 associates nation-wide, plus $100,000 in matching funds from the company.
