Good Sams donate for Christmas
COEUR d'ALENE - The North Kootenai Good Sam Chapter is being good this Christmas.
The group of about 40 members donated food, clothes, toys and gift certificates to three families.
President Herb Heisel said they've been doing this for the past five years, and enjoy helping families cover their basic needs while also providing a few extra gifts.
"It is good that people in our area see the need and help where they can," Heisel said.
