Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. During the third quarter, KATU supported the educational and informational needs of children through station sponsorships, on-air news and local programming features, and fundraisers; all with additional educational resources on katu.com. In July, KATU's Family Matters public service campaign focused on National Night Out and how children and families can come together to deter crime. KATU Meteorologists broadcast weather live from a local neighborhood National Night Out party on August 6, 2013. National Night Out was supported on-air by Public Service Announcements, News, and AM Northwest interviews leading up to the event. On August 14, 2013, KATU sponsored a major fundraising event for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. KATU broadcast live from the Miles for Smiles phone bank in the AM Northwest studio during every newscast starting at 5:30 a.m. through 7 p.m. and during AM Northwest (9-10 a.m.). The KATU Miles for Smiles event generated over 7 million airline miles for Make-A-Wish to grant travel-related wishes of ill children. In addition, KATU aired Public Service Announcements, News and AM Northwest features leading up to the August 14th Miles for Smiles event. KATU's Family Matters public service campaign also sponsored a School Supplies Drive in August to provide learning materials to the non-profit, Friends of the Children. Friends of the Children hires professional adult mentors to guide vulnerable children from kindergarten through their high school graduation. The KATU Family Matters School Supplies Drive provided over 300 children with notebooks, flash drives, backpacks, graphing calculators and much more. The KATU Family Matters School Supplies Drive was supported by segments on KATU News and AM Northwest, along with Public Service Announcements and online support on katu.com.
