Box of Rain serves more than 60 at-risk youth through its year-round mentoring programs. Most of those served reside in Annapolis public housing. The organization was formed in 2003 to honor the memory of Lee Griffin, a dedicated sailor and Annapolis community member who was the victim of a violent crime. Its mission for our town’s disadvantaged youth is to nurture self-esteem and develop life skills that lead to positive contributions to the community.
