Posted: Updated:
OCEAN CITY -

A new project will help to rebuild community playgrounds damaged by Sandy while paying tribute to the victims of a national tragedy.

It's called the Sandy Ground Project and it's coming to Ocean City.

The local and state firefighters unions along with the Ocean City shops "Old Salt" and "Sting Ray" are teaming up to rebuild the 29th street playground that was damaged by Hurricane sandy.

The restoration will be dedicated to the memory of 6-year-old Benjamin Wheeler, a victim of the Sandy Hook massacre.

The 29th street playground is one of 26 sites in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut to be restored—one for each of the 26 lives lost in the Newtown shooting.
