Blood Assurance celebrates 50 years

Chattanooga, Tennessee (WDEF)- Blood Assurance is celebrating 50 Years of collecting blood to help serve the community.

Saturday’s celebration was meant to recognize not only the hard work of the employees but also the community giving blood to help others in the community.

CEO JB Gaskins says the people is what make what they do possible including overcoming what happened during the pandemic.

“Pandemic did put a damper on things. It eliminated a lot of the ability for us to go out with our mobiles to high schools and some of the colleges, businesses were closed down and we’re slowly getting back to normal but there’s still a lot of organizations where people are working remotely. So we have to count on those people to come to centers like this one across our entire service area,” said Gaskins.
