The White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, is offering the chance to “Adopt an Alpaca” as a Christmas gift. Through the program, people can “adopt” an alpaca for one year for a donation of $100 or for six months for a donation of $50. The adoption fee helps cover the cost of routine medical care and boarding for the alpacas. Those who donate to the program will receive a “certificate of adoption” with a photo of their alpaca. Those who adopt their alpaca before Dec. 5 also will receive a free handmade felted alpaca fiber ornament. All those who adopt an alpaca also are welcome to visit the White Violet Center to see their alpaca. For more information, call 812-535-2932 or e-mail email@example.com.
