Six Flags Magic Mountain is offering two ways for the community to help others during the holiday season.

The Valencia theme park will host a food drive for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Guests who bring a full bag of nonperishable food items will receive a free park admission ticket good for that day.

On the food bank's wish list are:

n Canned goods, which include soups, vegetables, tuna, peanut butter and baby food.

n Packaged items, which include hot cereal, mashed potatoes, stuffing mix, rice and baby cereal.

n Drinks, which include coffee, tea, supplemental drinks, baby formula and dry milk.

This year marks the sixth consecutive year Magic Mountain has hosted the drive.

Along with the food drive, Magic Mountain offers free admission to anyone who brings a new, unwrapped toy valued at $15 or more to the theme park on Dec. 7, 13 and 14 as part of the annual "Toys for the Holidays" drive.

A price tag and/or receipt should accompany the toy.

All toys collected during this year's three-day event will be distributed with the help of UPS to thousands of children through local charities including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern California.

More than 410,000 toys have been collected for Southland youngsters over the 24 years since the theme park started the toy drive.

Six Flags Magic Mountain is located at 26101 Magic Mountain Parkway.
