‘Jeopardy!’ Donates Alex Trebek’s Work Wardrobe To Charity

Alex Trebek’s work wardrobe is going to good use following the beloved host’s death.

At the suggestion of Trebek’s son, Matthew Trebek, his family and “Jeopardy!” donated much of the late game show host’s wardrobe to The Doe Fund.

The Doe Fund provides paid work, housing, vocational training, continuing education and social services for Americans with histories of addiction, homelessness and incarceration.

On Instagram, Trebek’s wife Jean commended her son for thinking up the donation.

Executive producer Mike Richards said in a statement, “During his last day on set, Alex extolled the virtues of everyone opening up their hands and their hearts to those who are suffering. Donating his wardrobe to those who are working to rebuild their lives is the perfect way to begin to honour that last request.”

Included in the donation are 14 suits, 58 dress shirts, 300 neckties, 25 polo shirts, 14 sweaters, 9 sports coats, 9 pairs of dress shoes, 15 belts, 2 parkas and 3 pairs of dress slacks.

The Doe Fund shared an update saying, “We have been so floored by the Trebek family’s incredible generosity. We also understand the hardship they’re overcoming; just two weeks ago, we lost our founder and longtime president to cancer. This support is crucial to the men we serve, whom we provide the career training and work experience necessary to find steady employment but are too often in need of professional attire. We know both George and Alex are guardian angels smiling down on them today.”
