VENICE, FL - Friday volunteers from the Palma Sola Presbyterian Church in Bradenton are packing hundreds of boxes. They are each filled with a Thanksgiving feast. They will end up in places like Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

The not for profit Agape Flights in Venice runs more than 50 mission flights per year. The boxes are going to more than 360 missionary families. They in return will share their meals with the locals says Allen Speer who heads up Agape. "It's a wonderful opportunity for them to not only have a taste of home but to share what we do around Thanksgiving."

Agape says they've raised about 75% of the money needed to fill the boxes which come to around $80 a piece. You can find out more if you want to help by going to their website at
