During a time when it can become very easy to focus our efforts internally and in our immediate households, there are some people who are also looking further abroad, finding ways to help complete strangers in a time of wild uncertainty.
Not all of us have the means to help build shelters and feed large groups of the hungry, but celebrities with cash at their disposal do, and some of them are.
Alex Trebek and his wife Jean have recently joined forces with Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission in California.
“Our mission is to prevent, reduce and eliminate poverty, hunger and homelessness,” the organization’s website states. “We do this by offering immediate assistance and long-term solutions.”
“We are a faith-based independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that does not discriminate based on gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or lack thereof. Our services are grounded in a deep respect for the dignity inherent in each human being.”
