The Legend Continues Program
Legend has it that in the 13th Century, in the area of Yorkshire England, Robin of Loxley, better known as Robin Hood, made a name for himself by lightening the purses of the wealthy to benefit the needy.
Today, the legend continues. We’ll provide you with a legendary meal before we lighten your purse and invite you to participate in selecting a worthy organization. Loxley’s will donate 5% of your food bill to the featured organization you choose. Being part of a legend has never been so easy or so much fun.
We encourage charities and organizations to participate in this program by becoming one of our featured charities. Click here to apply.
This Month's Charities
The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army, a world-wide organization active in over 109 countries, preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ and reaches out to meet human needs in His name. Basic human needs of food, clothing, and shelter are central to The Salvation Army’s social ministry. Food pantries, clothing rooms, utility and rent assistance programs along with response to other crisis needs faced by families are a part of The Salvation Army’s services. Assisting families with food and toys during the Christmas season is a special outreach of the Salvation Army.
Educational, recreational and life-skill development programs of The Salvation Army aim at giving the younger generation the resources to make right choices. After School activities including tutoring and homework assistance, summer day camps and residential camp are among the opportunities offered to children.
Nationwide and worldwide, The Salvation Army responds to natural disasters whether they be hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or fires.
The Salvation Army also reaches out to those afflicted with drug and alcohol addictions. Residential rehabilitation centers operated by The Salvation Army provide the healing setting for a new lease on life for many.
Each local Salvation Army operation (Corps) is responsible to raise its own funding to carry on its work to the greatest degree possible.
Toys for Tots
Christmas is a time of joy, happiness
and goodwill. It is a time of giving and helping those who are less fortunate
than ourselves, especially Impoverished children. For over half a century one organization - the U.S. Marine Corps is the unchallenged leader in looking after America’s Needy children at Christmas. In 1947 Major Bill Hendricks with the support of members of the Los Angeles Marine Corps Reserve unit collected and distributed 5,000 Toys to needy children. Bill’s program was so successful that in 1948 the Marine Corps adopted it nationwide as the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Since then Marines have conducted successful campaigns each year and have collected and distributed over 400,000,000 toys. Today, Toys for Tots is the Marine Corps’ premier community action program. To many Americans, Christmas is not complete without the image of uniformed Marines collecting and distributing toys to the needy children of the community they serve. Over the past 15 years Marines have distributed an average of 15,000,000 toys and brought the joy of Christmas to an average of 6,100,000 needy children each Christmas year.
