“Pinnacle has been a champion of SERVE6.8 since the start. Each year our relationship grows deeper. Joining alongside our Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Resource Center ministries, Pinnacle has had an amazing impact on SERVE6.8 and helped us support over 20,000 families in 2022.”
Krista AckermanVolunteers, Special Events, & Care DirectorServe 6.8
"The new home kits that we receive from Pinnacle help our youth exiting foster care and our single parents with necessary items to start making a home. Most of these folks move in with nothing… these kits give them a head start. They cannot buy these items with food stamps so it often takes months to acquire the essential supplies. We are lucky to partner with a company like Pinnacle who supports local non profits."

"Pinnacle has been a reliable and consistent partner of The Matthews House for many years now! They have provided many dinners (with fun activities!) to families that work with The Matthews House from all over Larimer County. Countless hamburgers and hot dogs have been grilled, and the friendly faces of Pinnacle staff have made our participants feel welcome and included. In recent years, Pinnacle has increased their engagement with The Matthews House to support our clients and staff all throughout the year. Pinnacle volunteers have helped with our annual fundraising gala, gathered school supplies for our high school students who don't have as many resources, run bingo night for families, served turkey and mashed potatoes at our annual Thanksgiving dinner, and collected non-perishable food to deliver with frozen turkeys to families across Larimer County right before Thanksgiving. Their commitment to The Matthews House's mission and to the families needing more support in Larimer County has helped us to serve the needs of families in many different ways. We would not be able to do all the events we have done without the support of Pinnacle staff and funds. They are committed to giving back to the community, and we always know we can contact Pinnacle when dreaming up a new project or another way to help families!"
