This year marks the 10th annual volunteer day for Vrakas CPAs + Advisors. In 2008, Vrakas decided to set time aside each year for an annual volunteer day project. Throughout the years, Vrakas has supported a variety of different organizations:
- 2017 – Blessings in a Backpack – Waukesha Chapter
- 2016 – Blessings in a Backpack – Waukesha Chapter
- 2015 – Blessings in a Backpack – Waukesha Chapter
- 2014 – Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee
- 2013 – Hope Center
- 2012 – The Association for the Rights of Citizens with handicaps (ARCh)
- 2011 – Waukesha County Park System – Minooka Park
- 2010 – Hope Center
- 2009 – The Women’s Center
- 2008 – The Women’s Center
For its ten year anniversary, Vrakas supported Blessings in a Backpack for the third year in a row. Blessings in a Backpack partners with America to ensure impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year. Vrakas assisted Blessings by packing 2,500 bags of food for the 2017/2018 school year. Each bag incudes nine nonperishable items for children to eat during the weekend gap away from school.
Did you know that over 4,600 children in Waukesha are hungry over the weekend? Want to help? Get involved today!
This project would not have been possible without the assistance of Lakeside International Trucks/Badgerland Idealease.
Vrakas is grateful that we are able to take time to give back and thankful that it’s for an outstanding organization like Blessings in a Backpack.
