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
Southern Community Services
Southern Community Services (SCS) is Penn-Mar’s community resource division providing critical social and support services to families in Southern York County. SCS continues to serve an area of York County where local residents often find it difficult to travel outside of their immediate communities for help. During the past two years, SCS has seen a dramatic increase in the number of families who require assistance to meet basic needs for food, shelter, medical assistance and transportation. In addition, families have turned to SCS for help in managing a personal crisis requiring short-term counseling. In working with families and individuals in crisis, SCS recognized the need to examine the significant and alarming number of suicides taking place in York County. As a result, CS has been instrumental in forming the York County Suicide Prevention Coalition and is taking a prominent role through York County in focusing greater awareness on ways to identify and prevent suicidal behavior.
Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for a Cure
Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Susan G. Komen 3-Day help support Komen’s global research program, the largest nonprofit source of breast cancer research funding outside of the US government. These funds also support large public health programs that address critical issues in breast cancer treatment and care. The remaining 25 percent stays in your local community, providing funds for financial, social and medical needs of our neighbors. Komen’s impact is unquestioned: virtually every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 30 years has been impacted by a Susan G. Komen for the Cure grant. Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people , ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure and the Komen 3-Day, the organization has invested more than $2.2 billion to fulfill its promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. For more information about Komen, breast health or breast cancer, visit komen.org or call 1-877-GO-KOMEN.
