WA Patriot Supports Peace of Love Cookie Company

WA Patriot enjoyed some delicious custom cookies featuring our logo icon, compliments of Peace of Love Cookie Co. in Virginia. Its owner, Ella, is a remarkably talented and inspiring young lady who is making a difference with every cookie she sells. Her business donates 10% of the profits to SPARC, a performing arts school in Richmond, VA for children with or without disabilities. We are grateful and proud to help Ella serve her community by supporting her business. We encourage you to watch the video linked below about what Ella does and why. This girl is truly amazing, and so are her cookies!

WA Patriot Joins Gig Harbor’s Adopt-A-Road Program

Earlier this month, WA Patriot took part in the City of Gig Harbor’s Adopt-A-Road program as part of our commitment to SERVE our community. The goal of the program is to make Gig Harbor the best and cleanest community in our area by reducing roadside litter, and to build civic pride in a litter-free city road system. Many thanks to our volunteers who took a few hours of their afternoon to remove litter on Peacock Hill, from Vernhardson Street to 112th Street.
