On this partly cloudy Friday, the Penny Wise Intern Organizers, Human Services Coalition and the City of Miami bid farewell to our most valuable player—Lucas Soto (Penny Wise Campaign, Faith-Based Organization Petition Outreach Coordinator). After four incredibly fruitful weeks, Luke is leaving to study abroad in Spain, an experience that will surely pale in comparison to his time at Human Services Coalition. Luke has been the most dedicated contributor to the Penny Wise Campaign, compiling contact lists, e-mailing and calling organizations, recording radio interviews and dabbling in video-editing. His passion and determination have been an inspiration for all of us, motivating us to truly impact our community and protect social services and jobs from county budget cuts.
Yesterday, Luke, along with another intern Daniel Rebello, recorded an interview for the 1080 AM radio show Life Changers. The interview will air on June 22, 2010 at 5:30 PM. The purpose of the interview was to spread the word about the campaign and direct people to the online petition. Please support Luke, Penny Wise and HSC by tuning into the interview and signing thepetition. Let us make sure his efforts were not in vain.
