Morning TV personality Big Budah from FOX affiliate KSTU-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah, spent the morning of July 12, 2017 at Summer Day Camp sponsored by the Salt Lake Corps of The Salvation Army.  During the live three-hour morning broadcast, Big Budah interviewed Major Troy Trimmer and several staff members about the social programs and services offered by the corps, while enjoying fun activities with the kids.

During eight live segments, viewers of FOX 13-TV were educated on the Summer Day Camp, which provides a safe place for parents to send their children. The program develops teamwork, emphasizes education, recreation and character building through service.  During the show, campers were seen doing arts and crafts, enjoying a drum class, filling humanitarian kits and playing dodgeball on the outdoor field. 

The various social ministries of The Salvation Army were highlighted including the meal programs for children, families and emergency food pantry boxes to those in need. Major Troy Trimmer commented, "Summer is a lean time for non-profits and we rely on our partnership with Utah Food Bank and donations from the community to meet of food insecurities we see especially among children and the elderly in our community."

The morning broadcast gave the Salt Lake City Corps an opportunity to appeal for donations through their website. "With the generosity of the community, when dimes and dollars go in, change is what comes out," Major Trimmer said.
