Christopher Plumlee is the president of Elevate Strategy Group and he sits on the board of One Man’s Treasure and he invited the DFW Inroads alumni for a meet up at Distinctive Vines Wine Lounge to “learn about a great mission, hang out with some old, dear friends and meet some new and great friends.”

Jennifer Clubb, Executive Director of One Man’s Treasure, said they seeks to empower men recently released from prison, who come to the Dallas and Fort Worth area, by providing them with clothing and opportunities for networking.

Ms. Clubb told the group that when a man is released from a Texas prison he is given four items: a used pair of pants, a used shirt, $50, and a bus ticket. When he attends his first meeting with his parole officer, he is given another $50. If he has served all his sentence of imprisonment, he receives $100, in addition to the clothing and bus ticket.

There are many ways to get involved with One Man’s Treasure by volunteering, hosting a clothing drive, giving a financial gift and becoming a shepherd. Visit the website: www.onemantr.org For more information, contact Jennifer Clubb at 1-888-433-9826.
