ALEX TREBEK

The son of the late “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek has donated his father’s TV wardrobe to a re-entry program for formerly incarcerated and homeless men. Matthew Trebek, who owns three restaurants in New York’s Harlem, packed up the suits, ties and sweathers for the Doe Fund, which has provided housing, counseling and job preparation since 1985. Matthew Trebek’s restaurants helped train aspiring chefs among Doe Fund residents, and knew what to do when his dad died last year. “I loved the idea of guys getting a second chance to go on interviews and feel presentable in my dad’s clothes,” he said. “It’s a good feeling, to know the suits are in the right hands,” he said. “It’s great if it helps them to rebuild their lives.” (Ben Hider/Getty)
