Yankee Candle Fundraiser

August 31, 2019

For the 12th consecutive year, Wellington Debate is selling a variety of candles through Yankee Candle for the holiday season. This is a wonderful opportunity to not only buy unique candles for your home, but to buy holiday gifts for family, friends, loved ones, and anyone else for whom you feel so inclined.

Yankee Candle also offers holiday gift wrapping, home and automobile air fresheners, gourmet pet treats and ornaments, and holiday-themes items as well. Students in both Wellington Debate classes will receive a sales packet with a catalog, order form, and other information.

If you’d like to review the options online, the complete fundraising catalogue can be accessed at https://www.yankeecandlefundraising.com/.

ORDERS CAN ALSO BE PLACED ONLINE! Go to https://www.yankeecandlefundraising.com/, and enter our Group Number (990006626) in the START SHOPPING area. Then … start shopping!

IF SHOPPING ONLINE: When checking out, make sure you enter your debate student’s name under “Group/Seller Information,” so I can give proper credit (literally and figuratively) to the correct debater!

We accept cash and checks for orders; checks should be made payable to Wellington Debate. Do not charge or figure tax on your orders, as we are a tax-exempt organization. Students will have 50 percent of their sales profit placed in their individual debate program credit line. Wellington Debate receives roughly 40 percent of the gross sales, so if a student sells $500 in candles, s/he will have roughly $100 in credit that can be applied toward debate-related options (tournaments, the spring banquet, etc.).


In order for candles (and other items) to arrive in time for the holidays, please place orders by October 31.
