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.

Bridge of Hope
Bridge of Hope Lancaster & Chester Counties assists single mothers, with dependent children, experiencing homelessness to secure permanent housing, stability and access to resources in their community through relationships with professional staff and mentoring friendships from local congregations.
Since its inception in 1988, Bridge of Hope Lancaster & Chester Counties has help end homelessness for over 1,000
mothers and children.

This rental assistance is on a decreasing basis for nine months, enabling families to end the trauma of homelessness quickly while they learn to rebuild a financially stable and secure home.
Each woman entering the program also works with professional staff to develop a plan for financial stability that includes specific goals and action steps.
The Bridge of Hope program includes career counseling, referrals to job training, empowerment-based counseling, and training in life skills, budgeting and parenting.
