A Laurel church and hundreds of good-hearted Jones County residents teamed up Saturday to help a wounded law officer who is continuing a long recovery process.  

An estimated 500 people bought chicken plates at Life Church at the 3rd annual benefit for Lt. Tony Stiles of the Jones County Sheriff's Dept. 

Stiles is recovering from gunshot wounds he received during a hostage stand-off in 2012.  

Jones County sheriff Alex Hodge said his department and the Stiles' family appreciates the continued support.  

"The people of Jones County have overwhelmingly, through prayer, monetary and other resources, have supported this family, as well as this department and we can't say thank you enough," Hodge said.  

Saturday's event also featured a live and silent auction.
