DALLAS (KRLD) - Some former residents of the apartments affected by the crane collapse in old east Dallas have decided to donate their furniture.

Many of the Elan City Lights Apartments affected still have the belongings of the former residents inside, with furniture in good shape.

Tammy Richards CEO of Volunteer Now says some have decided to donate it.

"We are receiving couches, with great sectional sofas. We're receiving dining room tables, we're receiving coffee tables, in-tables, all the things you'd need to set up your first apartment," she says.

She says the furniture is sold at an inexpensive price to first responders and teachers in need.

"In many cases, the insurance have already paid for replacement goods and so folks didn't need the second sofa of dining room table. The furniture is not damaged but gently used," she says.

The crane removal is expected to last another month.
