What would MTV's Jersey Shore reality show be without the 9th roommate--Seaside Heights.  The beach town and its famous boardwalk have been ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, but Snooki and Co. have vowed to step up and give back to the town they helped make nationally famous.

The special, "Restore the Shore," will air live from MTV's Times Square studio Thursday, Nov. 15 both on MTV and MTV.com and will feature the Jersey Shore cast and other special guest celebrities. According to the cable network, "The fundraiser will focus primarily on providing relief to Seaside Heights -- the town and its residents have been nothing but gracious over the years, and now it's time to return their kindness and generosity."

The cast has teamed up with the organization Architecture for Humanity and will collect donations to rebuild the Seaside Heights boardwalk.
