Blood supplies are dangerously low in the Permian Basin, so what better time to have a battle between Midland Memorial Hospital and Medical Center Hospital in Odessa to see who can have the most blood donations.

According to NewsWest 9, July 21 & 22 both hospitals will battle to see who can generate the most blood donations.

Midland Memorial Hospital won the last challenge but that does not mean Medical Center Hospital won't win it this year.

With blood supplies dangerously low, it is really not important who wins, it is important to get blood levels back up to what they need to be here in the Basin.

So roll up your sleeve and head to the hospital nearest to you and lets get the blood bank to 100% capacity on the amount of blood available.
