Students at Camelback Desert School, 9606 E. Kalil Drive in Scottsdale, recently donated 45 new toys to Chrysalis, an organization that helps community members impacted by domestic abuse.

The donations were the result of a school-wide drive to benefit children in need during the holidays, according to a press release.

At the close of the toy drive, students helped load the gifts into vehicles for delivery to the organization. Through this initiative, students learned the importance of giving back, especially during the holiday season, a release states.

Chrysalis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to individuals and families impacted by domestic abuse. Through a comprehensive trauma-informed approach of services, Chrysalis aims to prevent domestic abuse.
