Ascension Parish Code Enforcement Officer Richard Throckmorton (right) is shown giving words of encouragement to Ascension Parish Health Unit Director Kenny Matassa recently while he gives blood during the parish’s quarterly employee blood drive. The blood drive was held at the Department of Public Works on Churchpoint Road in Gonzales. Matassa said 30 employees participated during the event. “We do it for the community,” Matassa said. “The employees of Ascension Parish Government always support the community. This is one way we show it by doing these quarterly blood drives.”
