MTV, the home of the "Jersey Shore" reality show, is planning a fundraising special to help rebuild New Jersey's devastated shoreline.

The program, called "Restore the Shore," will air on Nov. 15 from MTV's Times Square studio in New York. It will feature the cast of "Jersey Shore" along with other guests.

The network said Monday the program will solicit contributions for the rebuilding of Seaside Heights, the heart of the Jersey shore and the principal setting for the "Jersey Shore" series.

MTV will be partnering with Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit organization that provides design and construction services to communities in need.

Seaside Heights was among numerous coastal areas devastated by Sandy last week.

"Jersey Shore" is currently in its sixth and final season. Members of the cast have taken to Twitter since the storm to urge their followers to donate to relief efforts:
