HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - A popular local attraction is teaming up with a charity organization to help those who need it the most. 

Lasting through the month of October and into the first of November, Magic Springs is working with Project Hope Food Bank of Hot Springs on several events. 

On Saturday, October 24 from 8 a.m. till 1 p.m., employees with Magic Springs are hosting a Monster Yard Sale and Blood Drive at the entrance of the park. The yard sale is open to the public and 10 percent of the proceeds will be given to Project Hope. A discount coupon to anyone who makes a purchase at the Yard Sale will also receive $10 off Magic Screams admission- making it $19.99.   

“It’s something our employees wanted to do for themselves, and they want to give back to the community at the same time,” said Steve Honeycutt, general manager of Magic Springs.

Also participating is the Blood Institute of Arkansas who will be accepting blood donations till noon and giving away free t-shirts to donors. 

During the park's weekend Magic Screams event, the public can also bring one or more non-perishable food items as they enter the park and receive a $5 discount off the general admission price.  

“We are excited to be partnering with Project Hope, “ said Steve Honeycutt, General Manager of Magic Springs.  “They distribute over 500,000 pounds of food a year in our area to over 55 agencies and we want to help them keep their warehouse stocked.”

Project Hope Food Bank Community Awareness Coordinator, Becky Chote, said the need in Garland County and the surrounding area is great.  “We are excited that Magic Springs has chosen to partner with us during this season.  We hope those who are more fortunate will help us feed those in our community who need help.“  

The food bank has been serving the area since 2009.  For information on Project Hope, visit projecthopefoodbank.org
