In the month of December, Vrakas CPAs + Advisors had the honor of volunteering at Robyn’s Nest in West Allis, WI.
Robyn’s Nest, an organization through Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, is a resource for children and youth in the foster care system. Robyn’s Nest works with caregivers and representatives of the foster care system to help children in need receive toys, clothing, hygiene products, school supplies, and other basic needs to grow. Through donations provided by the community, Robyn’s Nest is able to provide these general necessities to children in the foster care system, especially during the holiday season.
In December, Vrakas employees were able to volunteer their time to help unload a semi-truck filled with toys, books, clothes, and other personal items and help organize them in the Robyn’s Nest warehouse. With the overwhelming support from the community, Robyn’s Nest had the good fortune to have to manage the overflow of items in an extra storage unit.
Along with donating time, Vrakas employees also collected a variety of toys, books and clothes, while raising over $1,000 for the cause.
This exceptional day concluded Vrakas charity events for the year, with the team raising thousands of dollars for organizations such as:
- Robyn’s Nest
- Fisher House Wisconsin
- Friends of Waukesha Public Library
- Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County (HAWS)
- Friedens Food Pantries
- Make-A-Wish Wisconsin
- Camp Hope
- United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County
For over 50 years, Vrakas has emphasized the need to give back to the community. The firm has done this not only through charity lunches, but also by participating in events, volunteering with area nonprofits and through memberships in various community organizations. Vrakas employees also support organizations through our time commitment and involvement as board members. At Vrakas, we believe in helping those in need and we are committed to improving our community.
Stay tuned for our charity efforts in 2024!
