NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Emmy-winning 'Jeopardy!' host Alex Trebek made a generous donation to help a Southern California nonprofit organization.
Trebek donated $100,000 to the Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission. The group's goal is to prevent, reduce and eventually eliminate poverty, hunger and homelessness.
Hope of the Valley is building a new facility in North Hollywood.
Trebek called founder Ken Craft and asked for a tour. Not too long after that, Trebek gave Craft a check.
The contribution will go a long way to helping fulfill the needs of many who need meal, transportation, and medical service.
A multi-purpose room at the new shelter will be named after Alex and his wife Jean Trebek.
