The Red Cross’s Dallas chapter is teaming up with Kessler Cookie Company at Oak Cliff Earth Day to bring you a blood drive and free cookies. Blood donors will receive a free cookie donated from Clyde Greenhouse’s neighborhood business.

"We think of [donating blood] as the ultimate in recycling," says Greenhouse, who says the response has been great thanks to a link on the Red Cross’s web page that allows participants to register to make a donation appointment at the Earth Day event.

This is the Red Cross’s first appearance at Oak Cliff Earth Day, but Greenhouse has teamed up with the organization before, accepting donations for the Red Cross through his company’s website during Hurricane Katrina.
