Six Flags Friends is a series of programs throughout the Six Flags family of parks that make a difference in the community by encouraging local involvement, supporting the mission of various non-profit organizations and bringing the thrill of Six Flags to children and families across North America.
Six Flags Friends is a proud supporter of hundreds of organizations throughout our Six Flags communities. Through our national partnerships, we successfully utilize our geographic span to make a difference as a unified family of parks. Through our donation program we are able to contribute to many local organizations. Six Flags Over Texas is also pleased to support the work of organizations that make an impact in our surrounding neighborhoods. It is the work of the organizations below that truly make our cities a better place to live, work and enjoy.
Six Flags Friends is dedicated to furthering the mission of the following organizations:
Big Brothers Big Sisters
The Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors that have a measurable impact on youth. Six Flags is proud to provide a platform for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program to develop positive relationships between mentors and children while enjoying a day at Six Flags Over Texas.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. Six Flags is proud to be a part of this amazing wish-granting organization and is excited to fulfill the wishes of children who dream of visiting Six Flags Over Texas.
The Gladney Fund
The Gladney Fund exists for the purpose of funding bright futures through adoption. By providing financial support for the Gladney Center for Adoption, the Center can continue to place children into loving families and continue to communicate the message of adoption as a loving way to build a family. Six Flags Friends is a supporter of the Gladney Fund and committed to their mission.
Through servant leadership, Mission Arlington has enriched the lives of many within the Arlington community by meeting physical and spiritual needs since 1986. Six Flags Over Texas is pleased to support their mission through culinary and retail donations, such as clothing and non-perishable food items, and volunteer opportunities, such as serving Thanksgiving meals.
Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House in Fort Worth has provided a supportive and stable home-away-from-home for families of children receiving medical treatment at area hospitals since 1981. Six Flags Over Texas is happy to provide paper goods for the facility during its annual “Paper the Holidays” drive held during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.
Arlington Life Shelter
Since 1987, the Arlington Life Shelter has offered shelter and support services for the homeless of Arlington to help integrate them back into society. Six Flags Over Texas is proud to help the shelter continue its mission through clothing donations and a flip flop drive held by Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.
Boys & Girls Club
During the holiday season, Looney Tunes characters and employees visit the Boys & Girls Club of Arlington to spend valuable time playing and laughing with young people. Six Flags Over Texas also donates tickets for Club youth to come out and enjoy everything the park has to offer. We are committed to the amazing mission of the Boys & Girls Club of enabling all young people to reach their full potential as responsible citizens.
