A North Dakota church that received financial help from a New Jersey congregation after a devastating flood 15 years ago is sending money east to help in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
The Rev. Gerard Braun tells the Grand Forks Herald (http://bit.ly/SnxQIW ) that St. Michael's Catholic Church in Grand Forks has collected about $15,600 and donations are still coming in. The money will be sent to St. Michael's Catholic Church in Long Branch, N.J., which was battered by the recent hurricane.
The New Jersey church gave the Grand Forks church $12,000 after the spring 1997 Red River flood that swamped the North Dakota city.
