Fans of the legendary Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek will be pleased to hear he is still changing the world.
His son, Matthew Trebek, announced Wednesday that the famous suits and other fancy clothing worn by the trivia show host are being donated to help those struggling get a second chance.
During his last day on set, Alex extolled the virtues of everyone opening up their hands and their hearts to those who are suffering

The suits are being donated to The Doe Fund, an organization that provides paid jobs, housing, vocational training, continuing education and comprehensive social services to Americans struggling with homelessness, addiction and incarceration.
"Donating his wardrobe to those who are working to rebuild their lives is the perfect way to begin to honor that last request," said Mike Richards, executive producer of the game show.
The wardrobe includes 58 dress shirts, 14 suits, 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 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,” President of The Doe Fund Harriet McDonald told DEADLINE.
Alex Trebek died due to pancreatic cancer in November 2020.
