The MTA is giving New Yorkers a chance to show support for the city's newest subway line, while also giving back to Sandy recovery in the Rockaways.

The New York Transit Museum Store is releasing a limited collection of H line merchandise.

The H was put online after Hurricane Sandy knocked out A train service in the Rockaways.

The blue H logo will be available on t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts paired with either "The Rockaways" or "Rockaway Shuttle" spelled out underneath.

The logo will also be available on magnets and lapel pins.

Proceeds will benefit relief efforts led by The Graybeards, which is a local not-for-profit established in response to the September 11th attacks and is dedicated to the Rockaway community.

The H shuttle operates between Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue and Beach 90 Street, providing Rockaway residents with a link to the rest of the city's subway system.
