Community Outreach

Principal Builders is grateful for all of the wonderful projects, superb clients, and amazing opportunities that have been given to us over the years. It is one of our core beliefs that it is imperative to give back to our community as much as possible. We are perpetually grateful for Allstate Glass, Ashcorp, MacDonald Cabinets, Ryan & Sons Roofing, MacLaughlin Insurance, and several other subcontractors, vendors, and clients that rally together to pay it forward throughout our community.

Below you will find some snapshots of our favorite moments and projects, as well as information on each organization we have supported through financial means or with our time. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to get involved with any of these wonderful causes.

Partner Joe Pirelli has been riding in the PMC for nine years along with his brother-in-law, Patrick McKenna, who joined our team in 2014. Our generous subcontractors, vendors, colleagues, family, and friends have helped us raise over $56,000 in an effort to eradicate cancer.

Cycle For Life

Cycle for Life is a 25, 50, or 80 mile ride throughout Middlesex County that raises funds for cancer patients at Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children.  Joe and Patrick have been riding for two years and have not only raised money but reached out to friends, family and colleagues and put together care packets for our Pedal Pals and their families. This year our “Pedal Pals” were Scarlett, 7, and Sophie, 6 months.
