Lutheran Social Services (LSS) is the latest recipient of a donation from the giving circle, 100 Women-of-the-Heartland Who Care, that was started by Tracy Ganley last year.

The organization holds three donation meetings per year where each member donates $100 to a local non-profit organization. The non-profit organization is chosen by the group from three nominated organizations.

LSS received $3,800, which will be used to help provide meal services to area seniors. Other donations in the past year include $3,100 to the Healing Hearts Network with funds going to the emergency shelter in Akeley, and $1,800 to Living at Home of the Park Rapids Area.

Anyone interested in joining is encouraged to visit the organization’s website,, join the giving circle on and follow on Facebook. For further information about the group, contact Ganley at 218-252-4222.
