Krispy Kreme is giving away free doughnuts to anyone who donates blood to the American Red Cross this week.

According to reports, customers who donate blood from January 24 to January 31 can receive a dozen of Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnuts for free — all they need to do is go to a participating Krispy Kreme store with their donation sticker or their proof of donation via the Red Cross app.

The American Red Cross will accept all types of blood — especially O positive and O negative — and platelet donations.

“We’re grateful for all that the American Red Cross does for our country and we want to help them,” Krispy Kreme chief marketer Dave Skena said in a press release. “Hopefully a free Original Glazed dozen will increase awareness and even mobilize those who can give blood. We want them to enjoy the doughnuts with our thanks but also share the doughnuts while encouraging others to roll up their sleeves. We’re also encouraging all of our employees who can donate to do so.”

“The Red Cross is grateful to Krispy Kreme for helping us thank our generous blood donors who are stepping up to help restock hospital shelves for patients in need during this historic crisis,” Paul Sullivan, senior vice president of Donor Services for the American Red Cross, added. “Our Red Cross teams are working around the clock to meet the needs of hospital patients but can’t do it alone. We hope this thank you from Krispy Kreme will help provide a ‘dozen more reasons’ for eligible individuals to make and keep their donation appointments in the days ahead.”

Elsewhere in food and beverage, M&M debuted new shapes for its iconic chocolate pieces.
