Backpacks, Bright Beginnings, and Back-to-School


On Saturday, August 20th, attorney Griff Shuler of Daggett Shuler Law appeared on Triad Today along with Ms. Amanda Hurley, Executive Director of the Robinhood Road YMCA, and Ms. Meredith Berry, Associate Executive Director of the William G. White, Jr. YMCA. They shared information about the Y’s Bright Beginnings program, and their partnership with the Daggett Shuler Back-to-School Backpack Program. Watch the segment:

The Bright Beginnings program works with local elementary schools to serve the most in-need students. The principals, guidance counselors, and staff work together to identify the students who would most benefit from the program. With the help of “shopping buddies” – adult volunteers from the community – these kids get to go out and select their own new clothing, shoes, and school supplies. The shopping buddies help the kids select things that are tailored to their unique style, and helps them get the school year started off on the right foot.

Daggett Shuler is proud to partner with the William G. White, Jr. YMCA this year to contribute backpacks filled with school supplies to the Bright Beginnings program. Back-to-school can be a very expensive time for families, especially with rising costs. The Daggett Shuler Back-to-School Backpack Program is now in its 8th year and welcomes the opportunity to help even more families than in previous years.

The Backpack Program has historically distributed 250 filled backpacks among 5 Winston-Salem/Forsyth County elementary schools, and much like the Bright Beginnings program, school staff help to determine the most in-need students. The bags contain just about everything a child needs to start the school year: crayons, pencils, pencil sharpeners, scissors, rulers, notebooks, glue sticks, folders, and even a set of earbuds. The program’s expansion is an exciting development and will benefit even more young students in the Triad.

Later in the episode, Griff Shuler also participated in the Roundtable discussion with Ogi Overman and Dr. Don Martin. They talked about current news items and political issues.
