FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Members of Girl Scout Troop 10806 completed the requirements for their Bronze Award. After troop leader Deanna Granito was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, the girls wanted to honor her through their Bronze Award project.

Granito mentioned to the troop that her favorite and most helpful thing after her surgery was a small pillow that helps keep her car's seatbelt away from the surgery site.

The girls decided that they would make these pillows, but none of them knew how to sew. They approached the women's group at Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church and recruited volunteers to teach them. The troop raised donations for all of the materials and met on April 12.

In 3.5 hours, the girls and volunteers made 135 pillows to donate to the Northside Cancer Center.

The Bronze Award is the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout (grades 4-5) can achieve.

The girls have completed community service hours, collected winter clothes for children in Afghanistan and produced the pillows in order to earn this award.
