Panda Restaurant Group Inc. will host fundraising efforts to assist with disaster relief for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The company has committed to raising funds through in-store and corporate donations at its Panda Express and Panda Inn locations.
From now through Nov. 30, Panda Express and Panda Inn locations across the country will facilitate donation collections through in-store drop-boxes allowing guests to make contributions of any amount. Additionally, Panda Restaurant Group Inc. will match 100 percent of the proceeds, with all donations benefiting the American Red Cross.
"We are extremely saddened by the aftermath of this disaster. Our thoughts are with those impacted by the hurricane, including our guests and employees on the east coast," said Peggy Cherng, co-chairman of PRG. "We are eager to support the relief efforts and assist the American Red Cross in rebuilding and aiding communities that were affected by the storm."
Panda Restaurant Group Inc. raised close to $1 million in donations to the relief efforts in 2011 following the Japan magnitude 9.0 earthquake and Midwest storms and tornados.
