The cast of Community is the latest TV ensemble to come together in an attempt to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts. As Variety reports, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong and Donald Glover will reunite for a virtual table read and Q-and-A session along with creator Dan Harmon.

The table read — which will take place on Monday, May 18 at 5 p.m. EST on the Community YouTube page — will be the first time Glover, who left the series in its fifth season, will be a part of a Community event since his departure. It will raise money for José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods, both of which are providing meals to frontline healthcare workers and families in need during the pandemic.

The cast will be reading the season 5 bottle episode “Cooperative Polygraphy,” in which the Greendale Community College study group gathers after the funeral of Chevy Chase’s Pierce character (which seems like a good way to leave out Chase, who left the show in 2012 on bad terms). After the table read, the cast will answer fan questions, which can be submitted on social media using the hashtag #AskCommunity or tagging @CommunityTV.
