When Alexis was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, he was healed by the experts at UCSF. His father Javier shares how his employer, Panda Express, raises funds to support the hospital that cured his son.

Panda Express associates raise funds through their Panda Cares platform, asking every customer to donate at the register, as well as their annual employee giving campaign.

In spring 2018, the "Panda Express Ambassador Desk" was unveiled at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland to honor Panda's ongoing commitment to our patients. From the moment our young patients and their families enter the hospital, they are greeted by a warm, friendly face at the Ambassadors' Desk. Our dedicated ambassadors provide nearly 180,000 outpatient visitors each year with directions, hospital information, and guidance to help navigate the hospital experience.
