Yankee Candle Gives Thanks Early

September 30, 2013

Limited edition holiday collection out now.

The Yankee Candle Company, Inc. debuted the Thanksgiving Dinner Collection, a new limited edition collection featuring three true to life Thanksgiving fragrances: Turkey with Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce and Sweet Potato Pie. As only Yankee Candle can, the company has brought delicious traditions to life to commemorate the most celebrated meal of the year and give back to the military through a partnership with the USO.

In the spirit of the holiday the collection celebrates, Yankee Candle will donate one dollar to the USO for every large jar candle or tumbler candle sold of new fragrances Turkey with Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce and Sweet Potato Pie from Sept. 30 through Oct. 31. The donations will help support the USO’s Holiday Box program, which brings a touch of home during the holidays to troops serving overseas. Filled with items such as decorations, games, snacks and much more, the boxes provides them with a little holiday cheer at a time when they cannot celebrate with their families. Thank you postcards will also be available in Yankee Candle’s 561 stores nationwide, which customers and employees can fill out to be sent to troops around Thanksgiving as a thank you for their services. In addition to the donation, Yankee Candle will include autumn scented Car Jars in the USO 2013 Holiday Boxes.


“Many of our customers value Thanksgiving as a time for spending with loved ones, so the Thanksgiving Collection is a way for them to relive and celebrate the holiday,” said Hope Margala Klein, executive vice president, brand, innovation and merchandising at The Yankee Candle Company, Inc. “We are so grateful to be working with the USO to connect our troops overseas with home and show a token of our appreciation.”
