Celebrate and Thank Panda Express on Lunar New Years!

Panda Express has requested that all funds focus on the space of a Center of Hope or programs and services that support a child’s entire well-being including their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Thanks to Panda Express, Akron Children’s opened its Spiritual Care Center in March 2023.

Features of the space include:

  • Sanctuary with flexible seating to accommodate small services
  • Two private prayer rooms
  • Children’s area
  • Study/living area with a multi-faith library
  • Place for supplies such as prayer rugs and crosses
  • Office space for Chaplaincy Services and a conference room with a smart screen for Teams meetings

Design elements are grounded in nature, such as natural, light-colored wood. The stained glass in the sanctuary was made using a technique called slumping to create interesting textures and shapes. The space is bathed in ample natural light thanks to several opaque windows that let in the light but enhance privacy. The space has greater visibility due to its prominent location near critical care areas.

Thank and Celebrate your Panda Express this year on Lunar New Years, Saturday February 10th!
