Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center Candle
“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture of their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”
~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In honor of Black History Month, we are extremely excited to share that our February’s charity of focus will be the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center in Newport, RI!
So what does this mean exactly? Every month, we select a different charitable cause to highlight and focus on, and from every handcrafted candle sold (retail...and with the exception of those candles already assigned to specific awarenesses) we will donate 30% to the MLK Community Center!
Founded in 1922 and renamed honoring Dr. King in 1968, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center is a central service provider for at-risk individuals, families, and seniors. An independent nonprofit, the MLK Community Center fights hunger, promotes health, educates young and school-aged kids, supports families, and engages seniors.
The mission of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center is to nourish, educate, and support Newport County, Rhode Island residents to improve their economic and social well-being. Their vision is to build a strong and united community where all people are empowered to be self-reliant and to live their best quality of life.

Agency goals are to:
- Reduce hunger through our food pantry, daily meal program, and home food delivery.

All Mystic Pines candles are handcrafted, 100% American-grown soy wax (or a blend of both soy and beeswax), cotton-wicked (lead-free) and Reiki blessed. Please note it may take up 4 to 6 business days to complete and ship your order.
HOUSEKEEPING: Candles burn best (and longest), when you allow a wax 'pool' to extend completely to the glass, otherwise your candle will tunnel straight down and the life of your candle will diminish greatly. Ceiling fans and floor fans (any type of moving air!) can also affect the way your candle burns.
LEGAL DISCLAIMER: All Mystic Pines Candle Co., candles are sold as curios only. Every soy wax item is lovingly hand-poured and Reiki Blessed. In no way, shape, or form do we guarantee any particular outcome. You must add your own pure love and positive intention to the products in order to make them work for you!
CAUTION: Never leave a candle burning unattended. Certain candles may contain crystals and herbs that could potentially 'spark' or crack the glass. Always burn your candles, votives and tea lights on a fireproof dish when possible.
