A Debt Management Plan was set up through Lutheran Social Services to encourage clients to achieve their goals in being debt free.

Clients who made on-time monthly payments were automatically entered into a monthly drawing.

Winners would receive $500 to be applied to their balance.

The winners of the $5,000 grand prize were clients in Duluth, and they say they could not be happier.

“I was numb the first I heard about it. To know that $5,000 is going to be put on your debt and you are going to be debt free sooner than you thought is incredible,” said grand prize winner Linda Hanson.

Linda and her husband now have plans to retire within 2.5 years — debt free.
