HOLLYWOOD STARS and figures have continued to step up to different ways during the novel coronavirus pandemic. While some have made generous donations, others have volunteered their time to help those in need.

This week Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone Nat Faxon and Jim Rash teamed up with the Groundlings Theatre & School to host special live streamed classes over Zoom.

All of the proceeds will benefit their alma mater The Groundlings Theatre & School revealed The Hollywood Reporter.

The writers and actors trained together at Groundlings, which has been open for 46 years. Falcone created the classes to support it as they share the technologies they learned from their training and careers as successful actors, directors and producers.

Faalcone said McCarthy taught a class called ''Auditioning for Film and TV.'' Meanwhile, Faxon, Rash and Falcone taught a class called ''Directing For The Screen.''

To celebrate health-care workers on International Nurses Day last week, Glen Powell recruited several friends to deliver meals to the nurses and staff at the Dignity Health California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles. Other stars to join the outing included The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley, Jay Ellis and Diane Cook.

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran surprised young fans in the UK by creating a Zoom session. During the elementary school lesson, the Thinking Out Loud hit maker spoke about his struggles with school and taught the students how to play some of his hit songs.

Bill Murray and Guy Fieri will compete in a nacho-making competition to raise donations and awareness for the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund [RERF] in the virtual event ''Nacho Average Showdown.''

The initiative raises funds for America's restaurant workers who are struggling financially due to the Covid-19 crisis.

Additionally, Chris Pratt and Elisabeth Banks reprised their Lego Movie roles to share tips on how to stay healthy amid the coronavirus pandemic in a child-focused animated PSA.

During the clip, the animated characters remind kids to think about their ''elboes, face, space and home'' in order to prevent the spread of the virus.

Last week, Skylar, Astin, Ryan Murphy, Kerry Washington, Barbra Streisand, Blake Shelton, Hoda Koth, Reeses Witherspoon, Viola Davis and Anne Hathaway were among the stars to donate and create ways to entertain those stuck at home.
