Holidays are meant to be spent with family, so join your DMYAT family for an open house at our new space. We'll have hot chocolate, a cookie decorating station, crafts, games, karaoke, and tours of our new home at Franklin Jr. High.
Because the holidays are also meant for giving, our open house will also serve as a donation drive for Youth Emergency Services & Shelter of Iowa (Y.E.S.S.). While donations are not required to attend our free open house, we hope you'll consider bringing an item from the list of needs below.
