Each time you use the card at the pharmacy, a donation is made to KU Medical Center Pediatrics
Walk into any Panda Express and you will see it. You will be welcomed to the restaurant right when you walk in. You will be asked enough questions that the customer service associate knows exactly what you want. And when you step up to the register to pay, you will be asked to make a donation to KU Medical Center's Pediatric Department. Really, every time? Yes, every single time.
Panda Express and their associates are proud of the partnership they have with Children's Miracle Network and it shows. Their fundraising totals go up every year because they are dedicated to making the lives of these kids better.
So grab yourself some Orange Chicken tonight and be a part of something much bigger.
