The Panda Cares Foundation is donating a total of $400,000 to enrich the education programs at 20 different Boys & Girls Clubs chapters across the nation, including Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. The funds will be used to support afterschool programs and learning activities for local children.

This year, the foundation celebrates its milestone 20th anniversary by honoring the communities in which it serves, inaugurating  “Panda Cares Day”—an annual day of giving. To honor this anniversary, Peggy Cherng, co-founder and co-CEO of Panda Express, along with over 250 Club members and a dozen volunteers from Panda Express celebrated the $20,000 donation to their local chapter with delicious food, fun games, and gifts for the members.

For 20 years, Panda Cares Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Panda Restaurant Group, has donated $140 million to health and education organizations since 1999, powered by the funds raised by Panda associates and guests every day. 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada provides a safe and positive environment for kids to learn, have fun and develop supportive relationships.
