"Jersey Shore" would have been nothing without the actual New Jersey coastline. And now the cast of the reality TV series will be reaching out a helping hand to their old stomping ground, Seaside Heights, the New Jersey shore community where the MTV show, starring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, JWoww, and the Situation, was set.

The Seaside Heights community weathered the antics of the hard-partying group, and now as the town's residents are recovering from Hurricane Sandy, the cast of the show will be returning the favor.

The special, "Restore the Shore," will air live from MTV's Times Square studio both on TV and online and will feature the "Jersey Shore" cast and other special guest celebrities. According to the MTV website, "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.

Cast members have also been working to help residents hit by Sandy. Vinny Guadagnino is appearing in a public service announcement to urge fans to send donations to the Red Cross. He told MTV, "We're spreading a PSA right now to text 'REDCROSS' to 90999." He added, "You can donate like $10, and I think if a lot of people do that, it will make impacts." Donations will go to help urgent needs of residents for food, shelter, and health care.

The special airs live on Thursday, Nov. 15, on MTV.
