Bakersfield Memorial Hospital got a big donation from Panda Express to mark the Lunar New Year.
A panda dropped by the Lauren Small Children’s Center with a check for nearly $172,000.
Those funds were raised throughout 2018 at local Panda Express restaurants for the Children’s Miracle Network.
The Lauren Small Children’s Center is the only Children’s Miracle Network hospital in Kern County.
Money from the CMN helps the center upgrade its service for the children it cares for.
