The “Battle of the Badges” Blood Drive is in full swing between Odessa Fire Rescue and the Odessa Police Department. Today, a blood drive was held in front of OPD.
“I just wanted to do my part,” said Crystal Williams who works in OPD’s Records Unit.
It was her first time donating blood. Turns out, she’s an O-negative blood type also known as the “Universal Donor.”
Yesterday, a blood drive also took place. This one, was at Odessa Fire Rescue.
It’s been great seeing so many people working to make a difference including firefighters, police officers, and members of our community.
