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)

american cancer society:
making strides against breast cancer

American Assimilation Helpline! Inc. took part in American Cancer Society's breast cancer event in Atlantic City. We can't wait to be involved in more initiatives to take more steps towards a cure for a cancer!

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.

I consider myself well read and academically inclined. I am open and honored to teach any student of any age or level. I have volunteered/tutored on several occasions. One of these occasions was a Girl Scouts Coding event at the local church, where I taught kids the basics of coding and computer science. I volunteered at Kumon (a learning organization founded to help kids improve and exceed expectations at school) where I shelved books, organized worksheets, tutored children with basic mathematics and reading, and more. I have more tutoring experience through Science Olympiad, where I taught my peers science topics relating to our competition.

I am a rising junior at Walton High School in Marietta, Georgia, with a 4.67 weighted/4.0 unweighted GPA and a keen interest in STEM subjects, especially in math and science.

Outside of school, I am on the board of Science National Honor Society, treasurer for HOSA, the technology director for Walton Habitat. In addition, I am a member of the Cobb County Youth Commission, where our volunteering activities include cleanup events and speaking about county government. Finally, I recently attended GHP with a major in physics and minor in math. While I do not have any formal tutoring experience, I have tutored family and friends who were in middle and high school. Specifically, I have helped them with Algebra and Geometry, some basic science problems, and teaching the basics of how to code in Python.
