Alex Trebek Wardrobe has donated some clothes that belonged to Alex Trebek, who died on Nov 8, 2020, after suffering from pancreatic cancer. The clothes include 300 neckties, fourteen suits, 58 dress shirts, and other clothing items.
These items were donated to The Doe Fund, an initiative created to help provide continuing education, vocational training, comprehensive social services, paid work, and housing to Americans who once had histories of homelessness, incarceration, and substance abuse.
Matthew Trebek, Trebek’s son, suggested that the clothing be shared to those partaking in the reentry program set up by the organization.
According to Jeopardy! Executive Producer, Alex Trebek talked about opening up our hearts and hands to the needy during his last day on the show. Donating Alex’s wardrobe to the underserved is the best way to honor his last request.
At the end, the clothing items included fifty dress shirts, twenty-five polo shirts, nine pairs of dress shoes, three hundred neckties, fourteen suits, fifteen belts, nine sports coats, two parkas, fourteen sweaters, and three dress slacks
We really appreciate Jeopardy!, and the commitment of the Trebek family towards the upliftment of the most vulnerable. The men in our programs have always needed professional outfits, so they can work with confidence and look good in their interviews. With the donations we got from Alex Trebek Wardrobe, a lot have been solved. It has gotten rid of the issue of inappropriate clothing.“The Doe Fund President Harriet McDonald
