Supporting Veterans

LINE-X, a protective coating company based in Huntsville, Ala., is donating $50,000 to UCLA Operation Mend, a nonprofit organization that provides medical treatment for veterans who have been wounded in war.

In November, LINE-X auctioned a West Coast Customs customized 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS Coupe for $32,000 at the Anaheim Mecum Auction with proceeds going to UCLA Operation Mend. After the car sold, LINE-X executives pitched-in another $18,000 to show their gratitude and belief in what the organization is doing for wounded warriors.

A $50,000 check was handed to UCLA Operation Mend by veteran and LINE-X President, Dennis Weese Thursday, Jan. 14, at the Operation Mend headquarters located at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
