State Prisoners Helping Others

It has no doubt been a difficult year for all Tennesseans. From devastating storms in March to the arrival of the coronavirus, our normal way of life continues to be impacted. In a time when people in need are having to rely on their communities more than ever, help is coming from an unlikely source: inmates at the Bledsoe County Correctional Complex (BCCX).

The BCCX Lifers Club has raised over $31,000 this year for nonprofit organizations throughout the state. Over $10,500 was donated to the First Southern Baptist Food Bank and over $12,300 was given to a children’s advocacy and outreach program.

The Lifers Club is a group of inmates serving sentences of 25 years or more. The group is committed to philanthropic work throughout the state. Since 2016, the Lifers Club has collected and donated $111,296.
