OC vs. MC clash to raise funds and collect supplies for Crisis Center of West Texas

OC vs. MC basketball clash to benefit the Crisis Center of West Texas

They may be rivals, but all West Texans will benefit when Odessa College hosts Midland College at the OC Sports Center on Monday, Feb. 20, 2023.

The evening women’s and men’s games will serve as a fundraiser for the Crisis Center of West Texas, which provides a variety of services including shelter to survivors of domestic and sexual violence in West Texas.

All proceeds from ticket sales to the evening games will be donated to the Crisis Center. Can’t make it to the game? Feel free to make a monetary donation by visiting here.

In addition, bins at the front doors of the Sports Center will collect donations of supplies the Crisis Center needs. The greatest needs in terms of donated supplies are shampoos, conditioner, body wash, lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, hair dryers, curling irons, straighteners, underwear, sports bras of all sizes, phone chargers, duffle bags, and new, comfy clothing (loungewear, pajamas of all sizes).

Odessa College Women’s team (13-8 overall, 6-4 conference) will host the Midland College Women’s (10-15 overall, 5-6 conference) at 5:45 p.m.
