Local Girl Scouts Kick Off ‘Hispanic Initiative’ at Warwick HQ

The following is a press release provided by Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England.

Warwick, RI — Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England [GSSNE], a nonprofit organization that offers opportunities for girls to develop positive values and to contribute to society as leaders and responsible citizens, launched their Hispanic Initiative with an event at the Council office located at 500 Greenwich Ave. on Saturday, Sept. 12.

This new endeavor will focus on introducing GSSNE to families that have recently immigrated to the United States, or are first-generation that did not grow up with the Girl Scouts, according to a press release from the organization.

The initiative is possible thanks in part to the generous support from a number of prominent Latina community leaders who serve on the GSSNE Hispanic Advisory Board.

“It’s an honor and absolute pleasure to support GSSNE with this inclusive effort, it allows the organization to reflect the rich makeup and interests of a whole new generation of leaders,” Adriana Dawson, Advisory Board Member and mother of a Girl Scout, said in the statement.

GSSNE welcomed Latino Public Radio (LPR), Pawtucket Credit Union, Neighborhood Health Plan, Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Cox Communications to the recent event.

Dr. Pablo Rodriguez from Latino Public Radio 1290 AM hosted a live broadcast from the kickoff with a number of special guests including Gov. Gina Raimondo.
