CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler Celebrates Panda Cares Day™ on August 8 Panda Express® locations support the holistic health care needs of pediatric patients in the East Texas community August 5, 2020

Tyler, Texas – CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler is recognizing the financial support of donations made by Panda Express® through its philanthropic arm, Panda Cares® to young patients in the East Texas area. The generosity of Panda guests and associates who foster the spirit of giving and inspire brighter futures are celebrated on Aug. 8, the anniversary of Panda Cares.

Donations collected year-round at local Panda Express locations have helped kids like 2020 Miracle Child, Kimber Jane De La Cruz. Kimber was born at just 27 weeks gestation and weighed less than two pounds. During her 89 day stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Tyler, many of the pieces of lifesaving equipment used were purchased by funds raised through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and partners like Panda Express.

On this year’s Panda Cares Day, Panda Express is hosting a one-day virtual fundraiser on August 8. When a guest places an order on the Panda Express mobile app or website using the promo code “PandaCaresDay,” Panda will donate 28-percent of online sales to CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler.

Additionally, CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler is excited to recognize Panda for the over $66,000 in donations made that will continue to help in our community and transform how we meet the most urgent needs, save more lives and protect our collective future.

“At CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler, we strive to address the most challenging health issues of today while preventing and preparing for those to come. When we change kids’ health, we change the future – for all of us,” Christina Mosier, Program Manager, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Foundation.
