The Hand Wash Cold Assistance Initiative

The holiday season is a particularly vulnerable time for at-risk families across the country. While the world turns its attention to our upcoming AJV release, we are working to provide assistance for families affected by food and housing insecurity across our cities. We ask that you consider supporting the Hand Wash Cold Assistance Initiative with a donation or your time. Your efforts will benefit local organizations and partners working tirelessly to provide families across the community with food, housing, and other support. As you visit your local A Ma Maniére location between 11.14 and 11.21, there are two ways to support the Assistance Initiative:


  • You are welcome to drop off new or lightly used clothing and footwear, non-perishable food items, and supplies in the drop boxes located in your nearest space. Please refer to the assets of this post for the details and guidelines for each type of donation.

  • Sign up in-store or online to join and volunteer with us on 11.22 at your local A Ma Maniére location in Atlanta, DC, or Houston to assemble Supply Kits, help organize the donations ahead of the delivery to each local partner, and meet and engage with other members of the community to discuss, discover and collaborate on ways to impact the city through collective action.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our team at community@thewhitakergrp.com, and thank you for supporting your local community.
