WEST TEXAS - As more and more people travel in the summer, blood donor centers are reporting a big drop in donations.

United Blood Services in West Texas has seen a drop in donors coming through their doors.

Summer is a historically low time for blood drives.

In fact, United Blood Services had two local blood drives cancel on them on Tuesday morning because of low turnout.

If you can donate, contact your local donor center.

In Midland, you can call (432) 520-4592 or call (432) 550-6553 in Odessa.
