Car for Carstens

Let me start by saying that you won't meet a more giving and selfless family. The Phyllis and Todd Carsten are amazing! Not only have they adopted their granddaughter, but they've adopted another child as well and if that's not enough, they are currently are in the process of fostering/adopting 3 more children who are siblings. They don't ever ask for a thing from anyone. They are extremely faithful and know that God will bless them with what they need. I know that so many people have been blessed by these two amazing people. Phyllis and Todd are both custodians in our district and never for one moment do they think of doing anything else. Our families and students love them and notice the pride in their work and the relationships they build with the students and parents. They would give you the shirt off their back to help you. They have touched countless lives with their generosity and extremely hard work. Bringing their family from 4 to 7 is a huge undertaking. They could use a van that would be able to seat all 7 of them. Currently, they are using two cars to transport everyone at the same time. We know the sooner they can get a van, the better their family will bond. Anyone who knows Miss Phyllis and Mr. Todd can't help but smile and know, they're doing great things. Your support is so important. Will you join us in our effort to bless the Carstens with money for a 7 passenger van?
