Those involved say its important for the entire Wabash Valley to know how big of an impact these animals have on the community.

"They are very environmentally friendly animal, and they don't destroy the land. Their fiber is hypoallergenic and it will reproduce itself so it's very sustainable. They are just a very friendly animal and easy to care for," said Sister Maureen Freeman.

The Sisters of Providence are hosting the third annual Harvest Dinner Fundraiser next Sunday.
   
All of the money will go benefit the White Violet Center.
