Maine company donates 10,000 candles to hurricane relief
WELLS (WGME) -- A Maine-based company is joining the nationwide efforts to support victims of both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey.
Village Candle Factory in Wells says starting Tuesday, it will produce and ship 10,000 portable storm candles to the relief efforts in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, where millions are without power.
"As a Maine-based company, we understand how important community support can be at a time like this,” President and Founder Paul Aldrich said. "We hope that these candles will help those without power to see some light during a difficult time."
