Twentieth Century Fox Television (TCFTV), Los Angeles, and the production crew of FX Networks' “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace” have made donations of nearly $15,000 worth of furniture, artwork, lights and more materials used on set to the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. The organization helps provide home improvement materials to families in need, and TCFTV provided an entire warehouse worth of items at no cost.
21st Century Fox’s film and television productions regularly find new homes for leftover set materials to reduce waste and support the communities where these projects work and film.
“After American Crime Story: Versace wrapped this season, our team had to find a home for many of the gently used set pieces,” Lisa Day, who oversees environmental sustainability efforts across Twentieth Century Fox, says. “Fox is dedicated to keeping as many reusable items out of the landfill as possible, so we decided to donate much of it to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles ReStores. It’s reassuring to know these set pieces will be given a second life and support a great cause.”
ReStores are nonprofit home improvement centers operated by Habitat LA that sell new and lightly used furniture, appliances, home accessories and building materials lower than the standard retail price. Fox donation included living room furniture, outdoor patio furniture, desks, dining room tables, kitchen appliances, curtains, glassware, bookcases, coffee tables, bedroom furniture, chandeliers, floor lamps, wall lamps, mirrors, TV mounts and barstools.
TCFTV donated additional set materials to The Actors Gang, a 35-year-old theater company based in Los Angeles.
