About AACO

Working hand-in-hand with the Community

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.

AACO-TAP Family Giving Tree Scavenger Hunt


Saturday, December 6, 2015 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM


Meet at Starbucks, 2291 Bridgepoint Parkway, San Mateo



Come on out and help spread happiness this coming holiday season! We'll be buying gifts for children who otherwise would go without this Christmas. Bring your holiday spirit and shopping skills!

We will meet at Starbucks to form teams and distribute Family Giving Tree cards which identify a specific underprivileged child and his/her Christmas gift wish. The teams will race around the Bridgepoint Mall in search of their gifts. We ask that you purchase the gift as a donation to Family Giving Tree. We'll wrap the gifts and have fun all the way.

Gift Wrappers needed to support Tenderloin After School Program!

Come lend a helping hand for TNDC's Tenderloin After School Program (TASP)as they gear up for another year of holiday gift distribution to youth in the Tenderloin neighborhood! The day will be devoted to organizing and wrapping their gifts. NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!

TASP’s mission is to provide a safe drop-in space for the children of the Tenderloin. TASP’s vision is based on the belief in the inherent value of children and youth from this community and their ability to grow, thrive, and succeed. TASP is a safe place for kids to express themselves socially, artistically, creatively, and physically through individual and group activities.

TASP’s programming strives for great diversity in the daily scheduling of events and activities – a diversity necessary to occupy the very active minds of the children. To find out more about them, visit their website at
