Alex Trebek’s Son Is Donating His Dad’s Suits To Charity Helping Homeless Find Work

The son of late Jeopardy! host, Alex Trebek, has found a beautiful way to honour his father’s memory.

Matthew Trebek will be donating all the suits his dad wore on the long-running TV show to charity.

In an Instagram post, Alex’s wife Jean shared how proud she is of her son for coming up with the idea:

“I sincerely appreciate my son Matthew and his great idea to donate his Dad’s suits to @thedoefund. I had never heard about this amazing organisation until Matt brought it to my attention…it truly is so wonderful,” she writes.

“It warms my heart to know that Alex’s suits will be donated to such an important cause.”

The Doe Fund is a non-profit organisation that works to break the cycles of homelessness and incarceration through housing assistance and work opportunities. One of the ways they do this is by providing free work attire for job interviews.

In an interview with InsideWink, Matthew Trebek says he hopes whoever ends up wearing the suits, knows they’re not alone:

“Even though I know that it’s not all about what someone wears, there is something to be said for feeling a bit better about yourself when you have pride in your attire. My hope is that the confidence someone might feel in wearing one of my dad’s suits and ties will help them land a job, and more importantly, will help them realise that they are not alone.”
