SALT LAKE CITY – Volunteers sought to give away 10,000 scoops of ice cream Wednesday, and the effort was meant to raise funds for charity.

Meadow Gold Dairy was giving away scoops of Moose Tracks ice cream as part of the 10,000 Scoop Challenge, and for each scoop given away the company donated $1 to the Salvation Army of Salt Lake City.

FOX 13 News’ Brett Benson, Kerri Cronk, Dan Evans and Allison Croghan were on hand to help out Wednesday morning. Troy Trimmer of Salvation Army Salt Lake City said the event was beneficial to all who are involved.

“Utah loves ice cream, the Salvation Army needs money on a regular basis to continue the programs we do, and people get a taste of Moose Tracks ice cream if they haven’t tasted it before so they win, we win and the community wins,” he said. “It’s a great win.”

The event was held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gallivan Center.
