Smart Talk: Corbett from Rome after meeting Pope; Social enterprise project

Originally posted by WITF, letting listeners know what to look for an upcoming episode of Smart Talk. View the original post and listen to the program, featuring ASSETS, here

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett meets with Pope Francis to invite the Pontiff to attend the Roman Catholic World Meeting of Families that will be held in Philadelphia in September of 2015.  After his private audience with the Pope, Gov. Corbett is scheduled to appear on Smart Talk via telephone from Rome.

Meeting a Pope is not something many people get to do, so Pennsylvanians will be looking forward to hearing about Corbett’s conversation with Pope Francis.

Also, we’ll learn about the Great Social Enterprise Pitch on Wednesday’s program.

A social enterprise is a non-profit or for-profit business that is set up to tackle social or environmental needs.  A good example in Central Pennsylvania is Ten Thousand Villages retail stores that sell products made by overseas artisans with the money generated going back to the countries where the products were made.

The Great Social Enterprise Pitch begins next week and will seek to find the next social enterprise idea.

Appearing will be Melody Keim, Vice President of Programs for the Lancaster County Community Foundation and Jonathan Coleman, Program Director of Assets Lancaster. For more information visit www.assetslancaster.org
