The 2023 James H. Cole Heroes & Hope Calendar

We are proud to announce that the James H. Cole Heroes & Hope Calendar for 2023 is now available! Every year, James H. Cole Legacy Foundation creates a calendar to celebrate the heroes in our local Detroit community who are making a difference every day. The individuals featured in this year’s calendar truly take this mission to heart.

The James H. Cole Legacy Foundation mission is to provide opportunities for economic empowerment, assist underserved schools and children in need, and support everyday people who serve to make Detroit a great place to live.

Inspirational Leaders

This year’s 2023 calendar features 12 inspiring stories of everyday people who have gone above and beyond to help empower, promote leadership, and make their community a better place. They are individuals who have shown commitment and compassion. Each monthly includes a beautiful photo and a quote from one of these heroes.
