On Friday, Nov. 13, Six Flags Magic Mountain will trade roller coasters and funnel cakes for paint brushes and hammers to help launch Project 6, the company's inaugural Day of Service.

The entire Six Flags family will collectively press pause on their day-to-day duties to spearhead and participate in volunteer projects within their local communities aimed at improving the overall quality of life.

All full-time employees will join more than 55 organizations from the U.S., Mexico and Canada to hand-deliver Six Flags smiles to those in need this holiday season.

All local volunteer initiatives will benefit organizations dedicated to the needs of children and families, public welfare or environmental issues.

Each Six Flags employee, representing a broad spectrum of talents ranging from entertainment to engineering, will be paired with a project that matches their expertise.

Six Flags Magic Mountain employees, in conjunction with United Way, will spread out across the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley and San Fernando Valley working with organizations such as Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Clubs, Carousel Ranch, the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry and LARC Ranch.

Projects range from refereeing a Special Olympics soccer tournament, painting classrooms at Boys & Girls Clubs, handiwork, painting and stall maintenance at Carousel Ranch and painting and food distribution at the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry.

"The Magic Mountain family is thrilled to be a part of this national initiative," said Jay Thomas, president of the Valencia theme park. "Serving in the community in which we work, live and play is invaluable. Our employee expertise is so diversified, we are able to spread out and help a number of worthy organizations on this special day. We look forward to carrying on the tradition for many years to come."

According to the Corporation for National & Community Service, as the economy slows and nonprofit organizations struggle to provide services, volunteers have become even more vital to the health of our nation's communities.

With almost 4,000 full-time employees participating in Project 6, Six Flags will donate more than 28,000 hours of service in just one business day.

Magic Mountain is located at 26101 Magic Mountain Parkway, Valencia 91355.

The theme park is open weekends and school holidays, including Nov. 25-29 and Dec. 12-Jan. 3 (except Christmas Day). The park is open weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
