A skating rink in Los Angeles set to be converted into a homeless shelter will be named after beloved ‘JEOPARDY!’ host Alex Trebek.

According to KCAL,  before his death, Alex and his wife, Jean Trebek, made a donation so that the Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission could purchase the old Skateland rollerskating rink and turn it into a bridge homeless shelter.

The facility was unveiled Thursday as the Trebek Center. Jean Trebek spoke at the unveiling saying, “I know how proud Alex was of their mission. He was so deeply grateful to be a part of the solution, to always lend a helping hand by offering both hope and practical assistance to those in need.”
