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
It all started with a few quarters. In the fall of 2012, a group of middle school students learned that every five seconds a child dies of hunger. When the kids learned that just one quarter feeds a child in Haiti for an entire day, they were certain that they could make a difference for children and students just like themselves. They began to collect change and raise money any way they could. Over the course of several months, these students realized that they shared a passion for starving children in third-world countries and they desired to do more.
Convinced that kids can make a difference every day for God, they knew they could take the little things, the small efforts, and a few quarters to make big things happen. The students decided to unite and create an organized effort to make an impact in Haiti and around the world. Fore change combines the students’ love for golf and with their passion to make a difference for the people of Haiti. This kid-run organization is currently planning their first major fundraiser - a golf event - with the hope that they will be able to feed over 40,000 people.
Fore change’s mission is to eliminate hunger by providing food, seeds for planting, and the knowledge of farming in an effort to create sustainability that will change the world!

Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that affects about 300,000 Americans. It mostly affects women, with a ratio of four female sufferers to one male sufferer and can range from mild to life-threatening. The most typical symptom of scleroderma involves skin tightening and hardening and the development of waxy patches and dark or red spots. More severe cases involve hardening of the internal organs such as the heart, liver, lungs or kidneys. Currently, there is no cure for Scleroderma and the cause is unknown. Medications exist only to treat symptoms and ease pain.
To fund much needed research for this unfamiliar disease, the Run for Linda: 5K Against Scleroderma will be held in honor of Linda Hayman. Scleroderma caused Linda to pass away in July 2009 at the young age of 48. Her family and friends have joined together with the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Scleroderma Foundation to organize this 5K. Proceeds will go to the Scleroderma Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) with a mission to support patients and their families, promote public awareness and patient education and to stimulate and support research to improve treatment and to find a cure for Scleroderma.
