Ohio Girl Scout Troop Honored For Pillow Project

     A Girl Scout troop that provides pillows and pillow cases to a northeast Ohio homeless shelter is among five recipients of state awards given in memory of Martin Luther King Jr.

     Scouts in Troop 397 in Lake Milton say their annual donation to a Youngstown shelter was inspired by King's "I Have a Dream" speech. The girls reasoned that in order to have a dream, a person needs a pillow.

     They were recognized on Wednesday at the state's annual King commemorative celebration in Columbus, coming ahead of Monday's King Holiday.
