On Friday, July 21, Shea Family Dentistry presented the $8,000 check to East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux and a member of Tullier's family. 

For two weeks the business gave away free donuts and coffee to anyone who made a donation toward Deputy Tullier's recovery. The doughnuts were provided by Tiger Deaux-nuts and the coffee was provided by River Roads Coffee. 

Tullier is still undergoing rehabilitation at a hospital in Houston.
