Alex Trebek's 'Jeopardy!' Wardrobe Going to Formerly Homeless Men

Alex Trebek's "Jeopardy!" look is serving others needing professional attire as they try to turn their lives around.


A significant portion of Alex's on-set wardrobe from the game show is being donated to The Doe Fund, a nonprofit that helps underserved individuals bouncing back from homelessness or incarceration get back on their feet, especially men.


A lot of those guys are looking for work, and need suits for job interviews. Alex's own suits will now be worn on their backs as they move forward.


The Doe Fund is getting 14 full suits, 58 dress shirts, 300 neckties, 25 polos, 14 sweaters, 9 blazers, 9 pairs of dress shoes, 15 belts, 2 parkas and 3 pairs of slacks.


Alex's own son, Matthew, actually linked up with "Jeopardy!" costumer Steven Zimbelman to make the selections and pack them up for shipment. There are photos of them going through a coat rack of Alex's wardrobe, and pictures of some of the men in need holding up suits after receiving them.
