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. JANUARY, 2014 -- MARINERS FANFEST -- KOMO 4 News Anchors were on hand to meet and take pictures with baseball fans of all ages at the pre-pre-season event of major league baseball, Mariners FanFest. Video highlights from the popular KOMO 4 News feature "Eric's Little Heroes" brought smiles and smiles to Mariner fans at the KOMO 4 booth the lst weekend of January. A special episode of Eric's Little Heroes aired the following week on KOMO 4 News featuring the antics of kids on the field trying their best to pitch, bat, catch and run the bases at Safeco Field. In its own subtle way the "Eric's Little Heroes" series encourages kids to play sports as a healthy alternative to sitting around all day and to be a good sport. MARCH, 2014 - WASHINGTON BANKERS ASSOCIATION FOOD DRIVE - To raise awareness of hunger in the Northwest and raise critical funds through donations, Banks across the state of Western Washington collected food and cash donations at the branch locations. Banks competed to see which location would get the most donations. Branches within banks competed for donations. Along with the campaign KOMO executed an on-air event in downtown Seattle as a final push. All proceeds benefit Northwest Harvest. Here is how the donations collected for this campaign will help local Children: More than 50% of those Northwest Harvest serves are children and the elderly; Northwest Harvest works with more than 360 food banks, meal programs and high-need elementary schools in the state of Washington to distribute food to people who need it; Northwest Harvest's Sandwich Brigade makes more than 1,000 sandwiches three times a week to hand out in sack lunches at Cherry Street Food Bank; 1 in 4 children (over 440,000) in our state lives in a home where there's not enough food (USDA); 75,000 families have been added to the hunger rolls since 2008. MAKE-A-WISH SUPER HERO SHOPPING SPREE - KOMO 4 is a sponsor of Make A Wish "Wishes in Flight" raising millions of miles each year to send children with life threatening illnesses on trips if that is what their wish requires. Sometimes a wish can be a wish to do something. This past month KOMO 4 Make A Wish volunteers Carol Garza, Will Harris, A.J. Roberts and Ginger Ka5z helped give Alexander (Make A Wish child) a Super Hero shopping spree. He was picked up in a limo and headed to Alderwood Mall. There he was greeted by Captain America and fellow Avengers characters. He got to make a Captain America Bear. Before they headed out to the next location, A.J. presented Alexander with his very own Avengers Membership card made by a KOMO 4 team member. It was then on to the Lego Store where he got a behind the scenes tour before going on a shopping spree. Next it was to a surprise visit to The Gap to pick up some new super hero t-shirts. The limo pulled back up and it was on to Red Robin to refuel for the final shopping trip to Target. Again, KOMO 4 designers helped create some fun super hero clues for the Target team to hide in the store. Alexander had a blast going around the store and looking for clues. At the end of the day Alexander was tired but left with a huge smile on his face.
