‘Jeopardy!’ To Donate 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!” are donating 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.
