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.

Habitat for Humanity Vets Build
Habitat for Humanity builds, renovates, and repairs simple, decent affordable homes with lower-income families who are living in inadequate housing and unable to secure conventional financing. Habitat is a people to-people partnership drawing families and communities in need of hope and revitalization together
with volunteers and resources.
Beginning May 2016, Habitat for Humanity will start a Veterans Build. Groundbreaking for the project will be held in April, and the construction of the home will begin with the raising of the walls during Blitz Week in May 2016. The Veterans build property was generously donated by the Drinkus, Fry and Acquaviva families. The prebuilt walls for the home were donated by Crossroads Missions.
The build will take approximately six months to complete. Once the project is finished, the three bedroom, one & a half
bath home will be sold to a qualified Habitat family only after the family has completed all of the requirements. The home will be built almost completely by unskilled volunteers, led by skilled volunteer supervisors and Habitat staff. Funding for the project will be provided through in-kind donations from the Veteran community.
