Old Riverside Foundation board member Greg Pool moves an old theater window that will be sold at ReStore in Riverside. The city offered the foundation salvaged Fox items, so they’re teaming with Habitat for Humanity to sell it and split the cash.
Stacks of what some people might see as simply old wood-framed windows and doors are a slice of history to the Old Riverside Foundation’s David Leonard. That’s because they came from the city’s Fox theater building.
And because they’re vintage and reusable, Habitat for Humanity’s Kristii MacEwen sees the windows and doors as potential projects such as a garden gate or funky coffee table.
The two organizations have teamed up to sell pieces salvaged from the Fox and adjacent businesses that the city of Riverside recently donated.
