Alex Trebek

Some of Alex Trebek's famously worn suits and more are moving locations for a good cause.


The late Jeopardy! host's clothes are being donated by his family to The Doe Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides services, housing and work opportunities to the homeless.

Jeopardy! executive producer Mike Richards shared in a news release how even in his final days, Trebek was always giving. He said, "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 honor that last request."

Trebek's donated wardrobe consists of 300 neckties, 58 dress shirts, 25 polo shirts, 15 suits, 15 belts, 14 sweaters, nine sports coats, nine pairs of dress shoes, three pairs of dress slacks and two parkas.

The clothes will be given to The Doe Fund's participants of the reentry program named Ready, Willing and Able. It is meant to make the participants look professional for job interviews.

"We are so grateful for 'Jeopardy!' and the Trebek family's commitment to lifting up the most vulnerable among us," president of The Doe Fund, Harriet McDonald said. "The men in our career training programs are always in need of professional attire, so they can shine in their job interviews and work with confidence once they're hired. This donation alleviates the obstacle of not having appropriate clothing."

The Jeopardy! hosts son, Mathew Trebek, was the mastermind behind this donation and is a supporter of the charity itself.

This donation means a lot to McDonald as her husband, The Doe Fund founder and president George McDonald, died last month at age 76 of lung cancer.

As Trebek's place in Jeopardy! will never be forgotten, many well-known names are in line to fill his shoes. Some names include, past game show champ Ken Jennings, Aaron Rodgers and Katie Couric.
