About Us

Our Community

For forty-five years, Vrakas has been privileged to be located in the Waukesha County community. Throughout that time, Vrakas has emphasized the need to give back to the community. The firm has done this not only through monetary gifts, but also by participating in community events, volunteering with area nonprofits and through memberships in various community organizations.

Volunteer Day
Vrakas sets time aside each year for its annual volunteer day. The employees of Vrakas spend an afternoon supporting a local organization in need of assistance. For 2016, the 9th annual event, Vrakas will be supporting the Waukesha County Chapter of Blessings in a Backpack. Blessings in a Backpack partners with America to ensure impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year. Vrakas will assist Blessings by packing 5,000 bags of food for the start of the 2016 school year. More info at http://blessingsinwaukesha.org/.
