David and Meghan Johnson, founders of The Johnson Family’s Mission 31 Foundation, unveiled their fourth David’s Locker at Ryan House on Sept. 10. The mobile locker contains noise-canceling headphones, Apple iPads, Nintendo Switches and video games.
David’s Locker provides students and chronically ill children and their family members access to electronics, serving as a source of entertainment, a tool for education and a portal for communication.
The Johnsons unveiled the first David’s Locker at Phoenix Children’s Hospital in April 2018. It was designed to be mobile in order to fit the hospital’s needs for technology on an isolation floor.
The second David’s Locker was presented to Cardon Children’s Medical Center in September 2018. It serves a variety of needs for many children as the hospital sees children from birth to age 18.
Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary School’s Special Needs Program received their David’s Locker in April 2019. It will provide students with a safe space to use technology to enhance their overall education experience.
Founded in October 2017, the Johnson Family’s Mission 31 Foundation is the personal charity of Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson and his wife, Meghan. The mission of The Johnson Family’s Mission 31 Foundation is to provide opportunities, support and resources to seriously ill children and their families by offering daily support and life-changing experiences.
