Doing Good That Begets Good...It Saves Lives

  • Press

With a drive to do something positive in this world of isolation and fears around one's health and safety, Maren Rosenberg, Owner, and Manager of Escape Artistry found a way to do a good deed that begets more positive results. 

"Blood drives are a simple, yet exceptionally vital, resource for our communities," explains Rosenberg. "As the world around us was growing dismal, I recognized the importance of empowering people to take action. 

"We at Escape Artistry and Uprising Theater are partnering with Vitalant (formerly LifeSource) to hold a blood drive on Sept. 26, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the 2nd-floor lobby at 1342 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Wicker Park. Registration is required.
