HUNTSVILLE, Ala., (Aug. 26, 2014) — Locally owned LINE-X of San Antonio, a franchise of LINE-X Protective Coatings, the nation’s leading developer and provider of high performance protective coatings, has partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help grant the wish of local San Antonio teen, Brandon to refurbish his 1997 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck. LINE-X of San Antonio helped to create this unique wish for Brandon who has Cystic Fibrosis unveiled the vehicle to him on Wednesday, August 13th at the local LINE-X of San Antonio along with his family, the Make-A-Wish Staff members and volunteers, and LINE-X team.
“Making Brandon's wish come true was a great experience and to see the look on his face really set this build apart from the normal everyday work. Brandon supplied us with a rough idea of what he wanted and with the donation of time, efforts and products from a team of vendors, manufactures, and warehouse distributors we were able to make his wish come true,” said LINE-X of San Antonio owner Josh Berg. “Make-A-Wish has the ability to do wonderful things for children with life threatening medical conditions and we are truly honored that we could help grant a wish that was in our scope of work.”
“This year, thanks to the help of generous donors and volunteers, Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas will make it possible for 231 kids like Brandon to experience the magic of a wish,” said Lauren Bremer, Director of Communications for Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas. “We are so grateful for the support and dedication of businesses like Line-X of San Antonio to help fulfill these wishes. Line-X is helping to give seriously ill children like Brandon an incredible gift and memories of a lifetime.”
Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The Central & South Texas chapter grants wishes to over 230 kids each year, and uses the support of individuals and local businesses to reach as many brave kids as they can. Make-A-Wish believes a wish not only brings joy to the wish child, but to the entire community.
LINE-X is honored to partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to support and provide the resources to grant the wish of a one of San Antonio’s local teens. For the full refurbishment of Brandon’s 1997 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck, LINE-X coated the truck bed in LINE-X PREMIUM, a high quality, fade, rust and impact resistant bedliner coating with an ultra-violet (UV) element to keep the bedliner looking new with a long-lasting luster, even in harsh environments. Also, LINE-X installed a durable Truck Gear by LINE-X tri-fold soft bedcover with a low profile design, sitting only 1” above the truck bed, offering easy operation, premium nylon straps for secure storage and a patented auto latch, dual locking system.
With a team of over 25 individuals and the support of vendors, manufactures, and warehouse distributors additional upgrades included Fabtech 4" suspension kit with new factory suspension parts, Ranch Hand Grill guard, KC slimlights, Big Country 3" nerf bars, XD crank 20" black wheels, Nitto terra grapplers 305/55/20, and Magnaflow cat back kit.
