Twenty-three years ago, Somerville, N.J., came through from Summerville in the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo.
Now Mayor Bill Collins is asking residents to be there for the people of Somerville as they deal with the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy.
At Tuesday’s finance committee, he said residents can drop off supplies, like bottled water, batteries and hygiene items, at any town fire station.
“If you went through Hugo, you know what you need,” he said.
Collins said he’s reached out to the mayor of Somerville and expected to have further information for council and residents at Wednesday’s Town Council meeting.
Collins recalled that Somerville sent two truckloads of supplies and a $13,000 check in 1989.
