Candles With a Cause
For those looking for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift that will have a real impact, the East End Cares and the Clamshell Foundation charity organizations have teamed up with Hamptons Handpoured to offer a $35 special-edition candle with profits benefiting food pantries here.
The Food Is Love candles can be bought at communityloveproject.org and at stores including Shan, Clic, Obligato, Petit Bleu, and Set Point Tennis in East Hampton, Lazy Point, the Tack Trunk, and Organic Krush in Amagansett, and Urban Zen and Matriark in Sag Harbor.
