Yankee Candle Fundraiser

Online shopping is still available, and open through the end of the year!


Our seller # is 990077510

Online orders are sent directly to the purchaser, usually in about a week.  It’s a great option!  This was a popular and productive fundraiser last year, we hope for even better responses in 2015. A parent volunteer is needed to assist fundraising coordinator Sarah Boyle. Interested? Any other questions? Email Sarah Boyle.


Busy shopping days are ahead! Make plans to use Scrips for your holiday shopping. There are SO MANY retailers participating! Go to and order SCRIP (gift cards).  By doing so, you make money for the band and for your student’s account! Remember, UNTIL THE END OF 2015, 100% of the profit on scrip cards goes to the student’s points account. This is an easy way to earn points by shopping just as you already need to do!
