NEWARK, Del.--()--Artesian employees rallied for their 10th consecutive year of participation in the Blood Bank of Delmarva’s Summer Blood Challenge, which helps provide a stable blood supply during the summer months. The Blood Bank of Delmarva provides blood and blood products to 16 hospitals on the Delmarva Peninsula.

I am proud of our employees and management team for all the effort put forth in this challenge and their contribution to this noble effort,” said Dian C. Taylor, Chair, President and CEO of Artesian Resources.
