Pinnacle Offices Will Close Early in Observance of Juneteenth

In Support of Our Associates and Clients
June 18, 2020

This Friday, June 19, all Pinnacle offices will close at 2 p.m. local time in observance of Juneteenth.

Also known as Freedom Day, Juneteenth celebrates the end of slavery. This has long been an important day for the African American community, and so we will take this small but important step in an effort to promote unity and much needed healing for our nation.  

To our clients: We know this may be an inconvenience. Our Client Service Center will be open, so you can get help if you need it.

  • Tennessee & Atlanta Client Service Center – 800-264-3613
  • Carolinas & Virginia Client Service Center – 800-262-7175
  • ACH and wire cutoff times will remain the same.

Juneteenth isn’t a federal holiday. Acknowledging the day by closing our offices a few hours early is a very small step that some may see as insufficient. I agree.

Nevertheless, I find great hope and inspiration in the fact that this move to acknowledge Juneteenth and the African American experience is led by people wanting to do something good, not a government declaration. It’s led by individuals and companies who recognize their potential impact and are making a statement of support. It’s an effort to raise awareness and influence our national conversation in a positive way.

Juneteenth 2020, at this unique and historic American moment, seems like the perfect time to pause, to listen and commit to doing our part to turn the tide. 

Unfortunately we are a nation in need of healing. But we can change that. We can and must do better. At Pinnacle, we’re committed to doing our part. Join us by uniting in celebration of Juneteenth – Freedom Day. That is most certainly a cause for celebration.
