Katrina overview from UNC-TV

Katrina overview from UNC-TV

This arrived in my mailbox today from UNC-TV. I do not recall seeing anything similar from WUNC.


Like all of you, our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the horrible impact of Hurricane Katrina. As we develop UNC-TV’s response to these tragic events, I wanted to make you aware of some of the resources we already have available to assist you in the days ahead. From talking with your kids and grandkids about the tragedy, to finding out how you can help, to monitoring the latest developments and learning more about hurricanes and disaster relief in general, check out the following links:
All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. You can help the victims of this disaster by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those in need. Call 1-800-HELP NOW or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish). Contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund may also be sent to your local American Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P. O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013. Internet users can make a secure online contribution by visiting or clicking the American Red Cross image above.PBS Parents offers positive ways to talk and listen to your children about tough topics: Newshour provides ongoing coverage of the fallout from Hurricane Katrina, as well as contact information for the various disaster relief organizations: educators, NOVA ScienceNOW offers information to help students understand the causes of hurricanes and the challenges of protecting cities like New Orleans; the site includes classroom discussion ideas and streaming online video: KIDS and PBS KIDS GO! continue to provide a safe haven for children, both online and on-air, with programs for children of the highest quality that stimulate their curiosity, encourage interaction and foster their imagination, as well as our own UNC-TV KIDS website.UNC-TV will also be offering special programming and additional information concerning related resources in the weeks ahead. Keep watching UNC-TV for more information. With all best wishes, especially to those of you with loved ones along the Gulf Coast,
