Emerson Elementary in Phoenix serves K-8 students eligible for special education services.
Phoenix, AZ – April 24, 2019
Ingram Micro is proud to partner with the Johnson Family’s Mission 31 Foundation, founded by Arizona Cardinals Running Back David Johnson and his wife, Meghan, to expand the David’s Locker program into Title I schools. Emerson Elementary School in Phoenix received the first of these Lockers at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday.
Each David’s Locker provides access to electronics and tech tools that offer a portal for communication, educational resources. The Locker for Emerson included iPads and headphones donated through Ingram Micro’s ongoing partnership with the Mission 31 Foundation.
David’s Lockers are the signature community outreach program of the Johnson Family’s Mission 31 Foundation. Beginning in October 2017, the Foundation initially focused on providing opportunities, support and resources to children undergoing treatment for serious and life-threatening illnesses and their families. The first David’s Locker was deployed on an isolation floor at Phoenix Children’s Hospital in April 2018, followed in September by a second Locker for Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa.
“Ingram Micro and I were initially inspired to get involved with the Mission 31 Foundation because of the clear need for support services for children facing long hospital stays or undergoing difficult treatments,” said Todd Zegers, vice president, ITAD, Commerce & Lifecycle Services. “Providing technology to Title I schools is a natural expansion of the program, and we were proud to donate both iPads and V7 headphones for the David’s Locker at Emerson Elementary, which serves students struggling with physical or mental handicaps. We’re committed to ongoing donations of electronics and financial resources to expand Mission 31 Foundation services throughout the Phoenix area.”
