NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – On Monday, volunteers were on-hand at 15th Avenue Baptist Church, where Debra Johnson, the TDOC worker who was allegedly killed by an escaped inmate earlier this month, was a long-time member.  

Donations were collected at the church, located at 1203 Ninth Avenue North, from 5 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  

All money raised will be given to the Debra Johnson account at Regions Bank to assist with family expenses.  

If you couldn’t make it to the church, you can also drop off a check at any Middle Tennessee Regions Bank. Checks should be made out to the Family of Debra Porter Johnson.  

Checks can also be made payable to Tennessee Correctional Executives Association and mailed to:  

Mr. John Fisher, Correctional Administrator, TDOC 
P.O. Box 90143 
Nashville, Tennessee 37209 

All money received will be given to Johnson’s family.  

By 6:30 p.m., News 2 raised nearly $6,000.
