Assemble a Grab N Go Snack/Breakfast Bag for Families Staying at RMH Boston Harbor


2-4 hours


At home, school, with friends or family! A great volunteer opportunity for individuals and groups.


Throughout the year


Items can be gathered/assembled by a class, team, scout troop, or individual. Adult assistance will be needed to delivery the completed items(s) to RMH Boston Harbor.


Families travel to Boston for medical care from across the country and the globe, leaving many of their belongings behind. These bags make RMH Boston Harbor feel more like home and allow families to focus on treatment. Grab n go snack/breakfast bags are any easy way for families to have healthy and quick snack/meal during busy treatment days.


Assemble a grab n go snack/breakfast bags for a family traveling to the Boston area for medical treatment. These bags can be assembled by volunteers and donated to support RMHC Boston Harbor families. Donations can be accepted between 9am-5pm on weekdays and 9am-5pm on weekends.


  • A paper bag or container for your snack/breakfast bag.
  • Pack your bag with a small water or juice & shelf stable breakfast treat or afternoon snack item (i.e. granola bar, crackers, dried fruits, single serve cereal, nuts, or other similar items).  

-All items must be store bought, no made from home snacks/items.
