GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A church in Grand Forks that received financial help from a New Jersey congregation after the devastating 1997 Red River flood is repaying the kind deed in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that St. Michael's Church and School in Grand Forks plans special collections this weekend to help out St. Michael's Catholic Church in Long Branch, N.J., which was battered last week by Sandy.

Development Director Debbie Patella says the damaged New Jersey church is grateful for the help.

The New Jersey church gave the Grand Forks church $12,000 15 years ago.
