MANASQUAN - In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, dozens of people gathered together to repair a playground damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

For more than four hours, volunteers helped to rebuild the place of childhood memories at Manasquan Elementary School.

Jersey Cares and the Super Bowl Host Committee donated the equipment and the World Mission Society Church of God permanently added new playground equipment.

About 100 Manasquan Elementary School families were displaced throughout the storm.

"We know that this community was affected by Sandy," said Saira Ahmed, of the World Mission Society Church of God. "If children don't have something to keep them occupied or feel joy about, it makes the experience of their childhoods different."
