The entire Hope Elephants community greatly appreciates the support Hope Elephants received as the organization endeavored to satisfy its financial obligations to Dr. Jim and his family through “The Laurita Fund.”
At this time, Hope Elephants is no longer accepting donations to “The Laurita Fund.”  All further donations received by Hope Elephants will go to the organization’s general fund for use in furtherance of our charitable mission and to satisfy related financial obligations.
If you wish to support Dr. Jim’s family – Carrie, Henry and Louis – at this difficult and financially challenging time, the Laurita family has advised us that you may give by sending a check to the address below.  Checks should be made out to Carrie Laurita.  These donations are being made directly to Dr. Jim’s family and will not be tax deductible to the donor.
