With Valentine's Day coming up, a Tulsa business made it easy to show you have a heart, simply by buying a heart-shaped cookie from Panera Bread.

For each cookie sold on Monday, February 11, Panera is donating 50 cents to 2-1-1 Oklahoma, the free, 24/7 phone line that provides Oklahomans with information about basic human needs, like food, clothing, shelter, and healthcare.

Last year alone, there were nearly 312,000 calls statewide to 2-1-1.

Downtown Tulsa's Dust Bowl celebrated 2-1-1 Day, as well.

The Blue Dome District bowling alley is donating half of its bowling proceeds from Monday to Tulsa's 2-1-1 Helpline.
