Welcome to Mount Pleasant Village

Although DC Health has made Covid tests available to District residents, many Villagers are unable to get to the library or to stand in line to pick up the test kits. Fortunately, Village volunteers are ready to deliver both antigen and PCR tests to the homes of these Village members.  Thanks to the District’s Department of Aging and Community Living (DACL) and the Village's Neighbors Helping Neighbors volunteers, we have a supply of antigen tests to share with those unable to get to the Library or other distribution site. If you are interested in having an antigen test delivered, please call 202-573-7548 and leave a message. You can also send an email requesting a test kit to NHN@mountpleasantvillage.org.
 
PCR test kits are also available for self-administration. These must be dropped off at collection sites such as the one at the Library by 8:00 p.m. on the day you take the test, and your results will be emailed to you. Village volunteers can help deliver and drop off the PCR tests, but they cannot assist with the nasal swab or other in-person contact.
 
For more information about assistance with Covid testing, please call the Village’s Neighbors Helping Neighbors help line, 202-573-7548, or email NHN@mountpleasantvillage.org.


Annual Meeting Recording

Thanks to everyone who took the time to join Mount Pleasant Village’s 2021 Annual Meeting on December 4. Featuring a panel of neighborhood leaders discussing volunteering in Mount Pleasant, the meeting was lively and interactive.  Also included were updates on activities of the past year, some of which were highlighted in a video by Rick Reinhard to start the meeting.  It was gratifying to know that over 60 Villagers chose to spend a portion of their Saturday afternoon online with their fellow Village members.
