Hunger Doesn’t Take Weekends Off


Each year Vrakas sets time aside for its annual volunteer day. For the fourth year in a row, Vrakas teamed up with Blessings in a Backpack-Waukesha County to help pack bags which provides weekend food for elementary school children across Waukesha County who might otherwise go hungry. 

Each bag of food contains nine items:

  • Chef Boyardee
  • Pudding cup
  • Applesauce
  • Fruit cup
  • Nutri grain bar
  • Animal crackers
  • Mac n’ cheese
  • Oatmeal
  • Fruit snacks

With the help of our employees and their families and a few of the Blessings in a Backpack crew, we met our goal of packing 4,800 bags. That is almost double the amount we packed in 2017. We would not have reached our goal without the help of Hadfield Elementary for supplying their gym space and Lakeside International Trucks for transporting the food and helping us unload. It was a TEAM effort!

In 2012, Blessings in a Backpack started bridging the weekend gap by serving 25 students at Hadfield Elementary School in Waukesha. Today, the program has grown to serve approximately 1,200 children at ten elementary schools – five in Waukesha and five in Oconomowoc. However, it’s a heartbreaking fact that 4,600 children in Waukesha are hungry over the weekends. For more information on the program or how to help, please visit https://blessingsinwaukesha.org/

Vrakas is happy to support the Blessings in a Backpack-Waukesha County program. It truly feels like we are making a difference, one bag at a time. Until next year!
