BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

There was a big benefit Monday to help the family of critically injured East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputy Nick Tullier. 

A jambalaya benefit was held at United Rentals from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, July 25. The volunteers at United Rentals prepared thousands of plates of jambalaya for the long line of cars that waited on South Choctaw while a separate crew was outside filling orders.

The $7 meal includes jambalaya, salad, roll and drink. Some people made monetary donations on top of their orders.

"We need to unite together. It's a good cause. You've got black and white out here," said one of the contributors, Damon Clark. "It's a good cause, you know, because the tension we had these last few days it's just been rough, you know?"

Clark said he waited in line for over an hour to get his order, but it was worth it. 

Raffle tickets were also on sale to further help the cause. The $10 raffle tickets were to win a Remington 870 Express tactical edition. 

The money collected from both benefits will help Tullier's family with medical expenses.
