American Assimilation Helpline! 2022 Annual Blood Drive
partnering with the AMERICaN RED CROSS
October 29, 2022 from 10AM- 3PM
New Church of Atlanta
2022 AAH! health event: blood drive & cpr training
Partnering with the American Red Cross, we held our annual blood drive. With 32 donors, the event can contribute to saving the lives of up to 96 people. Thank you to those who contributed to addressing today's significant blood supply shortage!
There is currently an extreme shortage of blood needed for lifesaving transfusions, and the Red Cross is crucial in solving this issue. Even one donation can save up to three lives. A blood transfusion is needed every two seconds, and there is never enough supply to meet demand.
Cards for kids event
Cardz For Kidz is a global non-profit organization dedicated to providing support, smiles, and encouragement to children, families, seniors, and veterans in hospitals, schools, and senior living. To support their mission, AAH held a card making event with students, parents, and others, making over 140 cards with 60 volunteers. A big thank you to everyone who supported us!
Organized by Elly Kang (co-founder) and Medha Gunda (Alpharetta Local Chapter head and Community Outreach Director)
ADOPT-A-MILE PROGRAM (Cobb County Govt.)
American Assimilation Helpline! Inc. has been a proud supporter of the Cobb County Keep Cobb Beautiful Adopt-A-Mile program. AAH! has officially adopted about a mile of Indian Hills Parkway, Marietta GA-30068. Clean-ups are held at every quarter first Sunday. It’s not glamorous work, but it’s great to see our neighborhood clean and neat. And each time we clean up our mile, there seems to be less trash to collect, so we are confident that we are making a difference. AAH! Adopt a mile program is an excellent way for groups to work together to keep Cobb beautiful. Cobb County has been reputed as one of the most attractive communities in the Southeast. Let’s preserve this attribute!
What to Expect
Usually, it takes less than an hour for volunteers to pick up the trash that has accumulated and collect the orange bags in a central location for the county to pick up.
Bags, latex gloves, and safety vests are provided.
Covid-19 precautions are observed! We provide masks and we keep our distance.
Wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring gloves if you’d rather not use the latex gloves we provide.
Children under 13 are not allowed on the cleanups for safety reasons. Children 13 and over must be accompanied by an adult.
