Our family moved to Franklin from California a year ago. After visiting several schools in the community, we selected St. Martin's, and we're glad we did. Our boys were warmly welcomed. Their teachers worked with them individually to make sure they were academically aligned with their classmates. The staff and families really make this school special. Posted by a parent on 09/07/11

That's Our School!

St. Joseph Indian School — Chamberlain, South Dakota
Sacred Heart School — Southaven, Mississippi
Holy Family — Holly Springs, Mississippi
Our Lady of Guadalupe — Houston, Texas
St. Martin of Tours — Franklin Wisconsin

Fr. Thi Pham and SMOT School Parent Lauren Jensen

The gymnasium at St. Martin of Tours parish in Franklin, Wis., was filled with cyclists on stationery trainers on Saturday morning. Why? Not just because the weather on the first Saturday of spring was cold and windy. The parish gym was the site of the Third Annual Pedal for the Food Pantry.

 

Organized by parishioners Lauren and Todd Jensen (their son David is a student at St. Martin of Tours’ school), the fund-raiser was begun as a way of doing something positive to remember a friend who was killed in a cycling accident. This year the event brought in $5,156.39 for the pantry, along with hundreds of non-perishable food donations. This brings the total raised over the past three years to just under $20,000.

 

The parish food pantry began in 2005 to assist families in southwest suburban Milwaukee. In its first year, there were 19 visits. Since then, visits have increased to over 600 a year, helping, on average, 55 households a month.

 

In a recent report prepared for Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force by the Congressional Hunger Center it was noted that the majority of people who go to food pantries do not receive Food Share (Wisconsin’s food assistance or “food stamp” program). Visitors are often from households where an adult is employed but who often come up short when it comes to feeding their family. Food pantries like the one at St. Martin of Tours, are an import resource in the community.
