New endowment fund supports crime victims

“We are honored and grateful that the giving spirit of Jim Acheson continues through the James. C Acheson Donor Advised Fund at the Foundation and has provided P.S. You’re My Hero with a grant to begin an endowment. This investment will truly help us to grow and sustain long-term support for victims of crime in St. Clair County,” said P.S. You’re My Hero Board President Beth Diehl.
“Establishing an endowment at some point was in our plans, but it seemed out of reach for the near future. This generous gift made it happen.”

A $25,000 donation from the James C. Acheson Donor Advised Fund officially launched the fund in January and will provide a strong base to build the future of the nonprofit.

Here's how you can support St. Clair County crime victims
-Laura Fitzgerald
Port Huron Times Herald, August 14, 2022

When P.S. You're My Hero founder Mara McCalmon endured criminal proceedings in the year following her husband's murder in 2010, there were few resources or crime victims like her.
Now, the St. Clair County Victim's Rights Office offers a comfort room, refreshments, financial support and a therapy dog, all funded through P.S. You're My Hero.
Residents have the chance to support crime victims through the nonprofit's annual 5K Run/2 Mile Walk, set for 9 a.m. Sept. 18 in front of the YMCA of the Blue Water Area.

Dozens Participate In Annual 5K Run / 2 Mile Walk

We had an opportunity to speak with Mara recently about how moving on has been and one of the things that you're doing is a walk run. It's five years the family who was behind me and my children decided it's time to honor Paul and we came up with this idea with the help of the victims rights office in St. Clair County to have a walk and a run so that everybody can participate. That not only honors Paul but all the heroes in our lives… our moms are dads are brothers and sisters the police the EMTs the doctors… there are so many heroes.
