Panda Express & The Coca-Cola Company Give Good Cheer This Holiday Season

The holiday season is in full swing and creating cherished memories with your family and friends is the most important part. Shopping for gifts, attending parties, celebrating another holiday school concert, and enjoying hot meals on cold nights before snuggling into bed are just a few examples.

Many families take the time to give back to help those who need extra help celebrating the holiday season. There are toy drives, food drives, and coat drives. You can find a family to adopt or a child that has created a wish list that you can grant. These ways of giving back are created to come together as a community during the holiday season.

Panda Express, a family-owned and operated business, has a core value of giving back all year round. They believe in sharing their good fortune and have done this through their foundation, Panda Cares. In 2018, Panda Express raised and contributed over $134,000 to our CMN Hospitals Program at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital.  Those funds have been used to serve sick kids and their families throughout the tri-county area, funding services like the Miracle Mobile, free medical transportation that drives families to and from critical appointments in the bay area.  These donations also fund the Days of Discovery special needs dive program at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and we are also proud to provide individual medical needs grants. These special grants provide medically beneficial equipment, services, and therapies for kids and families living in our 3 local counties that are otherwise unfunded.

Every day of the year, Panda Express guests and associates help kids here in the tri-county that are served by our CMNH Programs and treated at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital. This holiday, Panda Express and Coca-Cola have joined forces to inspire hope and spread joy to children and families facing hardships this holiday season by committing to donate every time a customer purchases a Coke beverage from now through Dec.28, 2019 up to $250,000 dollars.*

Visit your favorite Panda Express today and help make a difference in the lives of kids in our community by rounding up and purchasing a coke product.

Not planning on going to a Panda Express, but want to join in the cheer and donate?  Visit our website to donate, and select Healthy Kids as the area of impact. Families, kids, and all of us at CMNH appreciate your time and dedication to creating a healthier community.
