Operation 363: Jack volunteers by playing the piano for Operation 363. 363’s sole purpose is to brighten the lives of people who do not have regular access to adequate food, housing, and/or clothing. 363 provides a meal, smiling faces and interaction, as well as personal items, socks, and some clothing every other Saturday at the Homeless Alliance. A hot lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. every other Saturday at the Homeless Alliance located at NW 3rd St and Virginia. 363 serves food for about 250 clients. Many of our friends who come to lunch are either homeless, displaced or living in temporary shelters downtown. Some have places to live but enjoy coming and having a good meal on a Saturday. We provide a meal, some smiling faces, new socks, underwear, personal items, and sometimes a blanket, backpack, T-shirt, or a pair of jeans. At Christmas we provide something special with warmth in mind, such as sweatshirts, hats, socks and gloves. Volunteers, clothing, warm hearts and smiling faces needed.
