Oakland-thing

This project aims to pair people in need of aid with the COVID-19 crisis with available and willing adults. Using the website provided in the 'oaklandWeb.html' file, people who are willing to volunteer, as well as those needing help, can register under their respective categories. Once this is done, an algorithm uses a scoring formula to determine the three best matches between one volunteer and one aid recipient, based on factors such as physical proximity, gender, and languages spoken.

To add either a volunteer or a recipient for testing purposes, visit the oaklandWeb.html website and fill out the Google Form. After doing so, run OaklandSpreadsheetAccess.py followed by OaklandMainScript.py.
