TAMPA, Florida -- August 18, 2012

A group of adults with developmental disabilities are working to fill 14,000 goody bags for delegates, VIPs and media coming to Tampa for the Republican National Convention.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the MacDonald Training Center in Tampa put in a bid for the job with the Tampa Bay Host Committee.

Officials at the center say they can't disclose how much it is being paid by the RNC because of a confidentiality agreement. All the workers are paid by the hour or the piece depending on their skill level.

The bags are filled with 144,000 items.

After the bags are completed, checked for accuracy by staff members and boxed, they are tagged with UPS shipping labels and sent to area hotels.
