Alpaca Ornaments Abound
We the people of Silverbrook have decided to invest in our own herd of alpacas. Watch Out, Sugar Hollow Farms! Partnering with Heifer International, our Advent and Christmas Mission is to purchase Alpacas that will be sent to live with families in remote high elevation regions where they thrive. In these regions, high-quality alpaca wool and the breeding of their alpacas will enable families to earn more as well as carry a higher standard of living throughout the community. Our goal is to see how many alpacas we can give to help sustain impoverished families. We will put ornaments on our Sanctuary Christmas Tree for $20 share donations (Brown Alpaca Ornaments) and $150 full alpaca donations (Cream Alpaca Ornaments). Contributions in any amount help needy families. Just mark "Heifer" on your check or envelope to denote your Christmas mission offering and hang an alpaca ornament on the tree. Let's see how many alpacas we can raise this Christmas Season!
