For the third year in a row, Daggett Shuler, Attorneys at Law partnered with the Winston-Salem Police Department to provide brand new backpacks and school supplies for local students in need.

On Wednesday, August 23, attorneys David Daggett and Griffis Shuler, Chief Barry Rountree and other members of the Winston-Salem Police Department delivered 250 backpacks filled with all the items listed on the supply list for the upcoming school year. School officials will determine which students will receive the backpacks. Before delivering the backpacks to the schools, Daggett said the partnership with the police department was Chief Rountree’s idea.

Rountree who is set to retire today, Thursday, August 31, said the backpack giveaway is just one of the many ways the WSPD lends a helping hand to those in need in our community. Earlier this month the WSPD partnered with the Winston-Salem Police Foundation to sponsor a supply giveaways at several different locations around the city.

“We know that students starting the school year with the necessary tools and supplies and needs can go a long way. Safety is number one but it’s also important for the police department to be inclusive in the community,” said Rountree. “That’s why we have these programs. So, the community can see us more than just when we have to come in and do enforcement efforts.”
