Salvation Army Captain Rings Bell for 36 Hours
SPOKANE, Washington (AP) Forgive Kyle Smith, of Spokane, if his wrists are a little sore. Not to mention his ears.
The Spokesman-Review reports that the Salvation Army Corps captain stood by his red kettle and ran his bell for 36 hours straight last weekend.
Smith started at 5 a.m. Friday in front of a Walmart store and kept ringing until 5 p.m. Saturday. The newspaper says he borrowed his 12-year-old son?s insulated boots and put down a piece of carpet next to the kettle to provide warmth and cushion his feet.
