Panda Restaurant Group Raises $645,000 for Typhoon Victims

Panda Restaurant Group Inc., parent company of Panda Express, announced it raised $645,000 to assist victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which recently devastated the Philippines. This donation was generated through corporate and in-store support at the company’s Panda Express, Panda Inn, and Hibachi-San locations, with Panda Restaurant Group matching 100 percent of all donations.

Funds will assist the American Red Cross’ efforts to lend Typhoon Haiyan victims with much needed resources, including food and supplies. Along with the Red Cross, funds will support the Tzu Chi Foundation, an international non-profit humanitarian organization. The foundation operates a response center in the Philippines, which is delivering supplies and providing relief to the devastated regions, many of which now lack access to basic necessities and clothing.

A press conference was held on Wednesday, December 11, at 10 a.m. at Ramón C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts in Los Angeles regarding the donations. Red Cross Club members on campus collected more than $700 and chose to donate it to a local Panda Express store, further contributing to the relief efforts.

“We are extremely saddened by the aftermath of this disaster,” says Peggy Cherng, co-chairman of Panda Restaurant Group. “As giving is one of Panda’s core values, we are honored to support the relief efforts and assist the American Red Cross and the Tzu Chi Foundation in rebuilding and aiding those that were affected by the typhoon.”

Since 2011, Panda has raised a total of $1.6 million in collected and matching donations to aid victims of natural disasters including the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma, this past May, Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
