Yankee Candle Launches Homefront Girl Collection

The Yankee Candle Company has launched the Homefront Girl collection, a limited edition line of candles in support of Homes for Our Troops, a Massachusetts-based military charity.

According to the company, $1 from each Homefront Girl candle sold, up to $75,000, will support the military charity, which provides mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured veterans post-9/11.

The five candles in the new line feature the following military-themed sentiments and fragrances:

  • Give Thanks For Heroes That Never Stop Giving: Fair Winds
  • Gratitude Never Out of Style: Watermelon Splash
  • Love My Hero: Coconut Kisses
  • Not For Glory, Always For Country: Break of Day
  • Support Our Troops: Hidden Leaves

“This Memorial Day, and throughout the year, we encourage everyone to support Homes for Our Troops with a collection that reflects the lifestyle and special bonds of the military community,” said Geoff Medeiros, vp/brand and product development for The Yankee Candle Company.

Each candle has an SRP of $27.99 for the large tumbler or jar candle and $15.99 for a regular tumbler candle.
