The Village’s Hello Neighbor project is designed to bring us together after a long year of pandemic isolation, racial trauma and political upheavals. Social distancing and mask-wearing have made it hard for us to stay connected, whether we are family, friends or neighbors. But those connections are vital to our health and well-being. And we are fortunate to live in Mount Pleasant, a small neighborhood recognized for its community character and warmth.
You can sustain and strengthen those qualities.
Join local businesses, neighborhood institutions, schools and residents in saying Hello Neighbor – on the street, on Instagram and NextDoor, and where you shop. Wear a Hello Neighbor mask or a button! Put a sticker on your car window! Bump elbows or wave! And watch for neighborhood gatherings where we can reconnect and celebrate.
What are we doing?
The campaign will include:
You may see these in the windows of Mount Pleasant businesses or on your neighbor’s porch. We will also continue to work with local food distribution programs and provide masks to food recipients.
How can I get involved?
