Supporting Students With Supplies: The Daggett Shuler Back-to-School Backpack Program


On Saturday, August 5th, attorneys David Daggett and Griff Shuler appeared on Triad Today to share how Daggett Shuler is supporting young people with their Back-to-School Backpack Program. Watch the segment:

Now in its 9th year, the Daggett Shuler Back-to-School Backpack Program works with five Winston-Salem/Forsyth County elementary schools to supply underprivileged kids with new backpacks full of all the necessary supplies. School counselors and administrators identify students in need to receive these backpacks. None of the bags or supplies have logos on them, to prevent other students from singling out these kids.

This program helps to create equal footing for young people as they begin the school year. Not having the necessary supplies puts a child at a disadvantage, especially considering that the beginning of the school year often sets the tone for the rest of the year. Getting a rocky start does not help young people, and the Back-to-School Backpack Program aims to ease those difficulties for kids and their families.

Daggett Shuler also donates stuffed backpacks to kids participating in the YMCA’s Bright Beginnings program, which provides underprivileged students with the opportunity to shop with a volunteer to get what they need for the back-to-school season, from supplies to new clothes and shoes.

Working with community partners is critical to the success of the Back-to-School Backpack Program. The Winston-Salem Police Department assists in bag delivery and distribution, school administrators and counselors help identify the most in-need children, and working with the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina provides opportunities to help additional children. The entire Triad benefits, as the program helps our next generation of community leaders get the best education possible. Later in the episode, David also participated in the Roundtable discussion with Ogi Overman and Keith Grandberry. They talked about current news items and political issues.
