The first Latina to head the Girl Scouts organization made a stop in Delaware.
Ana María Chavez made a number of stops throughout the state Thursday in order to promote her organization as well as encourage more adults to volunteer.
One of her first stops was at the Latin American Center in Wilmington.
"Once you've gotten educated on these issues please help us by donating your time and your treasure, because we can go out and recruit a hundred girls for girl scouting tonight, but if we do not have the adult volunteer support, we can't serve these amazing girls," Chavez said.
In its hundred years, the Girl Scouts has had over 59 million American members and more than 10 million members in 145 countries.
