LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former TV game show host Bob Barker is donating $2 million to a charity that helps injured members of the military and their families.

The former host of “The Price is Right” will donate to the Semper Fi Fund, which assists Marines, soldiers, sailors, and Air Force and Coast Guard members who are injured during service.

A press statement says the donation will be made Wednesday at a ceremony in Hollywood.

Barker is a former World War II fighter pilot. He’s also an animal rights activist and last year donated $2.5 million to help People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals open a new location in Los Angeles.
