 Snooki donated her comfy slippers while Ben Stiller doled out pancakes as the stars do what they can to help the victims of superstorm Sandy.

On Twitter “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi posted a picture of the pink-and-metallic gold puffy “Snooki” slippers that she was donating to storm victims. She also posted pictures of bags of clothing, shoes and blankets she was giving away to the storm victims.

“I’m coming with clothes to keep warm!!!” she tweeted, followed by “Sending out ASAP! Robes, slippers, sweats, blankets, everything.”

Snooki and other “Jersey Shore” cast members are coming together for a live benefit on MTV  Nov. 15 to “restore the shore.” Seaside, N.J., the Jersey shore town where the reality show is filmed, was hard hit by Sandy.

“That is our second home,” Snooki told “GMA” this morning, during the kickoff of ABC’s day-long “Day of Giving” to raise money for hurricane-relief efforts.

Ben Stiller also took time out to help storm victims.

The “Zoolander” star was snapped serving up pancakes, bacon and eggs to hungry New Yorkers at a shelter in Brooklyn on Friday.

Later he tweeted “Lots of respect for all the people working at homeless shelters and those still not able to get home or power.”

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin paid a surprise visit to New York University students who had been evacuated from their dorms.

The “30 Rock” star was photographed sitting among the students who were sleeping on wall-to-wall cots in the main undergraduate student center.

Lady Gaga shared an unreleased demo that she wrote at age 16, titled “No Floods,” with her millions of Twitter followers to honor her hometown, New York City.

“I wrote this song when I was 16. So weird to hear it now because of hurricane. ‘NO FLOODS’ hope this will cheer u up,” she tweeted.

She vowed to do more as soon as she finished her tour. “I’ll be there as soon as I can to help my old neighborhood. I’m on tour + can’t let my fans down. I want to help with my hands with all of u,” she wrote.

Many more stars have pledged money to aid storm victims, including New Jersey native Chelsea Handler, who ponied up $100,000 to the Red Cross when actor John C. Reilly stopped by her talk show to urge audience members to donate to the organization’s relief efforts.

Then there were the angels at Victoria’s Secret. The lingerie brand, which was setting up for its annual fashion show in New York City, came to the rescue of the New York Army National Guard’s 69th Infantry Regiment, which lost power and Internet when the hurricane hit the armory, where the fashion show was scheduled to take place Wednesday.

According to Wired, Victoria’s Secret powered up its generators early to provide light and heat to the armory and even loaned its forklift so pallets of food could be loaded into trucks from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and delivered to shelters around the city.

A rep for Victoria’s Secret did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com’s request for comment.
