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.

I am a sophomore at Campbell High School. I am currently part of Grassroots Law Project, Georgia Youth Justice Coalition, and Fair Fight Action. Grassroots Law Project is an organization that combines grassroots organizing with legal expertise to combat racial inequality. Within this group, I serve as a student lead. I instruct and mobilize over 1,000 students from all around the world to organize against racial injustice in their own schools by giving them resources, directing them to training, and answering questions. Georgia Youth Justice Coalition is a group of students that are registering voters, organizing youth-led canvassing programs across Atlanta, training and paying young organizers, and leading voter information campaigns. My role is an outreach leader. I reach out to other organizers across the nation, building connections and partnerships to boost our fight and vision. For Fair Fight Action, I participate in text and phone banks to notify and persuade voters to act on important issues relevant to them, such as calling their senators to vote "no" to voter suppression laws or to share their own experiences of voter suppression. School activities that I am involved in are Student Government Association, Beta Club, and the International Baccalaureate Leadership Team Committee. Following the Atlanta Spa shootings, I led the effort by the No Place for Hate campaign in out school to organize against AAPI hate and discrimination of any kind. Lastly, I have my own initiative that aims to combat health inequities caused by COVID-19 by providing supplies and support to underserved medical clinics.
