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.

Diakon Youth Services
Nurturing change and growth in children, families, and communities.
Diakon Youth Services has been transforming the lives of at-risk youths since the 1970s, through a range of community-based treatment, vocational training, counseling, and mentoring services. Diakon Youth Services prides itself on working with county agencies to create unique strategies to help young people, among them innovative day treatments, monitoring services, and an evening reporting center throughout Central and Eastern Pennsylvania.
Part of Diakon Youth Services, the Diakon Wilderness Center has been a leader in providing specialized, outdoor-based services for youths from across Pennsylvania since the 1980s. Located on 170 mountainous acres near Boiling Springs, Pa., the center provides month-long wilderness challenge-based experiences, a weekend program designed to help young people avoid the temptations of their home environment Friday through Sunday, an alternative-education day treatment program along with community case management services
In addition, the center hosts the Flight Program, a unique mentoring and service initiative in which former students of the center and other young people who have aged out of other youth services voluntarily participate to enhance their opportunities for achieving responsibility and success.
Diakon Youth Services directly continues Diakon’s 150-year heritage of care and concern for children, youths, and families, begun by homes for children established in the 1800s. It’s a remarkable tradition that we uphold daily in our many programs.
