SOUTH CHARLESTON -

The weather was gloomy Sunday but it didn't stop thousands of people from getting out and getting free ice cream in South Charleston.

It was all part of the United Way of Central West Virginia's "Sunday Scoop."
Area businesses set up booths and handed out all types of flavors to guests.

Volunteers say it's a great way to benefit such a good cause.

"This is where we give back to all of the individuals in the community, who are giving back and letting everyone know that we're out there," said YWCA Volunteer Cher Hilliard. "It's just like a free social, like back in the 1900s."

Some of your favorite members from WOWK-13 were also on hand handing out chocolate and chocolate chip ice cream to the public.

WOWK-TV also received third place in the best decorated booth contest.
