File: Alex Trebek donates $500k to fight homelessness

A game show host and wife are stepping up big to help fight homelessness. Who is Alex Trebek!

The jeopardy host just donated $500,000 to a rescue mission in Los Angeles.

The CEO of Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission says the money will help pay for a new facility to house homeless seniors. It will also have a medical center on site.

According to the mission’s CEO, Trebek first became interested in their work earlier this year when he donated 100k after touring the facilities.

Months later, Trebek and his family went to check on the progress of the new center that’s when he handed over a check for half a million dollars.

As a thank you for the generous donation, the multimedia room at the new north Hollywood shelter will be named for Trebek.
