Asian Americans for Community Outreach (AACO) is an organization dedicated to creating a forum in the San Francisco Bay Area where Asian American professionals and students can meet and foster the common goal of community service, benefiting the extended community as a whole.
AACO members can be found throughout the Bay Area. AACO organizes community service and social events and promotes awareness of social and political issues relevant to Asian Americans. By bringing together people from many diverse fields, AACO hopes to pool its members' knowledge, strength, and experience to make a positive impact on our community.
We welcome you to contact us if you have any questions about our organization.

Recreation Center at Lincoln Square Park, 250 10th Street, Oakland, CA 94607
The City of Oakland, District 2, is having their annual Turkey Giveaway on Saturday, 11/19. Last year, they organized distribution of Thanksgiving Baskets to 500 under-served families. In the spirit of giving, AACO will be partnering up with the City of Oakland and the Wa Sung Community Service Club to help out on this important day. Volunteers will be helping out with different duties including packing food in the morning and distributing the food to churches and families in the afternoon. We recognize this is short notice, but if you can join us, please email me ASAP so that I can let the event coordinator know how many additional volunteers they can expect.
Parking is on the street. There is a public parking garage under Renaissance Plaza that is not too expensive (entrances between at 9th & 10th on Franklin and Webster). The park is about 3-4 long blocks away from the 12th Street or Lake Merritt BART Stations.

In addition to housing development, TNDC focuses on community organizing, urban food growth and land use, and its after-school program with the idea that everyone should have good quality housing and good quality of life in the city they love. Each year TNDC After School Program is having its annual gift wrapping party on Saturday December 10th. This year they are recipients of both Blackrock and BART’s holiday drives so there will be tons of items to wrap! A light lunch will be provided.
