Pinnacle Gives, the philanthropic arm of the Pinnacle Companies, has recently given a $5,000 donation to the nonprofit Starting Hearts. The gift will help teach Summit School District children lifesaving CPR and leadership skills. 

Starting Hearts is based in Avon, but it opened a Frisco office in 2021. Its mission is to save sudden cardiac arrest victims through free CPR and defibrillator education as well as increase the distribution of defibrillators in public places.
