50th Anniversary Mission Project

To Benefit Uni-Pres Kindercottage

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Illinois South Conference and the 50th Anniversary of Uni-Pres Kindercottage, the ISC Mission & Ecumenism Team is inviting you to participate in a special mission project to be dedicated at the ISC Annual Meeting October 24, 2015.

The state of Illinois has mandated that the Kindercottage playground be updated to comply with new safety standards by January 2016. Kindercottage currently has a Capital Campaign of which the new playground is just a portion. We are asking all churches of the Illinois South Conference to do what they can to help. The attached plans explain the playground equipment and costs. Click here to view it and share with your congregations. 

Here’s how you can help...

1. Donations and Fundraisers:

Checks to be made payable and sent to Uni-Pres Kindercottage - ISC Playground Fund, 564 Veronica Ave., E. St. Louis, IL 62205.

2. Volunteer Opportunities:

Dismantle existing equipment

Remove existing mulch

For two separate playgrounds

Prepare ground for rock and concrete

Lay forms Spread rock base

Lay concrete

Assemble and install new equipment

Install TuffTurf Safety tiles

Provide lunches and beverages on work days

Construction is scheduled for September through October so the funds need to be raised by the end of August. However, construction on the 6 - 23 months old playground pad will begin as soon as funds are received so that a playground area will be available during dismantling and reconstruction of the existing playground.

To schedule for one of the work crews, contact Margie Lindhorst ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or618-281-4090.)

Work crews will be directed by Kent Lytle.

Lunch crews will be led by Margie Lindhorst.

Uni-Toys will provide a consultant to assist with correct installation of the TuffTurf tiles and equipment.
