We are fortunate to live in a community that cares about the lives of first responders within Kootenai County. We are equally grateful to the local businesses who support the community that they do business within. This is true of Gyro Shack, Coeur D’Alene who recently raised and contributed $533 to Kootenai County Police & Fire Memorial Foundation during their 1 year anniversary celebration.

From September 17-23, 2018, Gyro Shack pledged to donate 10% of their sales resulting in a $533 contribution for Memorial Foundation. 

Many thanks to the staff and management during their busy week and to all who came out to enjoy their meal at Gyro Shack!

Thank You Coeur d'Alene Realtors!

Last year May 5th our community lost Sgt. Greg Moore #K27 when he gave his life in the line of duty. The Coeur d'Association of REALTORS brought awareness and gratitude with "Paint the the Town Blue" campaign (supporting those you put service before self by displaying a blue bulb on their front porch). They sold over 7,000 blue light-bulbs (Awesome👍🏼) and we were honored with a generous donation from them and the community with their donations and support. A special thank you to all that participated and appreciating our #firstresponders in protecting our #community and remembrance for ALL our fallen officers!
