Student rings bells for the Salvation Army for 24 hours

Posted:

LA CROSSE (WKOW) -- You'll find all kinds of people ringing bells at the Salvation Army kettles this time of year, but you won't find many like 17-year-old Anna Lattos.

Anna, from La Crosse, will ring bells for 24 hours, straight. It's part of her senior project to learn about people in need. She started volunteering at the Salvation Army, but once she heard some of the stories of the people at the shelter, she decided to do some extra credit.

"In the morning it's going to be really hard, but I just have to do it. I'm willing to do it, just because I want people to know about it and I want people to say she finished and now I want to ring bells too," said Lattos.

Lattos started at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday and will continue ringing bells until 10:00 a.m. on Friday.
