On Saturday, October 17th, attorneys David Daggett and Griff Shuler of Daggett Shuler Law appeared on Triad Today to discuss the firm’s Back-to-School Backpack Program. This program, now in its sixth year, benefits underprivileged elementary school students in Forsyth County.
With approximately 23% of children in Forsyth County living at or below the poverty line, and the projected 2020 total back-to-school spending coming in at $33 billion, the need for this program is evident. Families will spend an average of $789.49 on school necessities, which is no small amount. Additionally, 93% of public school teachers pay out-of-pocket for the items their classrooms need. It is estimated that those costs work out to about $500 per teacher.
Daggett Shuler aims to ease some of these stressors with their Backpack Program. Partnering with the Winston-Salem Police Department, they provide backpacks with every item on the recommended supply list to Forsyth County schools. The administrators at each school then distribute the bags to in-need students. Having the right tools at their disposal sets the students up for success – both in school and in life.
Later in the episode, David Daggett also participated in the Roundtable discussion with Ogi Overman and Keith Grandberry. They talked about current news items and political issues. Watch the video:
