Alex Trebek undoubtedly left a lasting impact as the longtime host of Jeopardy!, but his family has made sure his wardrobe will continue to impact the lives of men looking for a fresh start.

Earlier this month, Trebek's family revealed they would be donating his wardrobe, consisting of 14 suits, 58 dress shirts, 300 neckties, 25 polo shirts, 14 sweaters, 9 sport coats, 9 pairs of dress shoes, 15 belts, 2 parkas, and 3 pairs of dress slacks, to the Doe Fund, a New York City nonprofit that provides services, housing and job opportunities to homeless men or those previously incarcerated.

Alex's son Matthew told the New York Times, "The Doe Fund made perfect sense since these are guys who are going on job interviews and need second chances. It would be an honor to the type of work that my Dad did throughout his life."
