Iowa Afterschool Alliance

The Christkindlmarket Silent Auction has twelve Iowa non-profit organizations thrilled to present festive tree creations for our market patrons. The Iowa Afterschool Alliance will be joining Chriskindlmarket for their first time with a “This is Afterschool” tree. Preschool through 5th grade children in afterschool programs will showcase their artistic skills crafting a one-of-a-kind showstopper.

Iowa Afterschool Alliance develops strong statewide systems of support to provide high- quality activities and experiences to youth in before school, after school, and summer programming. These programs keep young people safe, provide childcare for working families, and organize activities that help youth develop skills and improve academically. Our vision is to give all Iowa children and youth access to quality afterschool and summer learning opportunities in their community!!

Join us at Christkindlmarket Des Moines 2022 December 1st – 4th. Bidding is available via text and online at starting December 1st at 5pm. For more information on Iowa Afterschool Alliance, please visit their website.
