Six Flags was closed today,  but not for rennovation. 

The entire Six Flags workforce took the day off from their normal work and spent the day volunteering.  It was part of Six Flag's first annual "Project 6" day of service aimed at improving the quality of life in local neighborhoods. 

About four thousand full-time employees joined more than 55 organizations from the U.S., Mexico and Canada to help communities in need.

Some employees broke out their paint brushes and helped spruce up the YMCA on Indian Head Highway in Fort Washington, Md.  By end of the day, a total of 28,000 hours will have been donated.
