Somehow, Alex Trebek, the beloved late host of Jeopardy!, still manages to give back.

At least, the memory of his kindness has resulted in the show and his family donating the late great’s clothes to charity.

The Jeopardy! Twitter page announced the news that they’d given a “large portion” of Alex’s wardrobe to The Doe Fund, an organization that provides work, housing, and training to underserved individuals who have struggled with addiction, homelessness, and incarceration.

In a chain of tweets, the show detailed just how many items had been donated, citing 14 suits, 58 dress shirts, 300 neckties, 25 polo shirts, and 14 sweaters among the articles of clothing. It was a family affair during the process as Trebek’s son Matthew assisted in gathering the items.

This news comes days after Jeopardy! announced its latest round of guest hosts who are stepping up in Alex’s absence.

Jeopardy! G.O.A.T. Ken Jennings is still helming the temporary spot as the show’s first guest host since Alex’s death. Others set to follow in his footsteps include, Katie Couric, Aaron Rodgers, Bill Whittaker, Mayim Bialik, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Anderson Cooper, Savannah Guthrie, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
