In the muster room at the Charles County jail Dec. 16, the toys, stuffed animals, board games and other Christmas presents were stacked nearly as high as the Christmas tree, ready to be delivered to the children of low-income families whose struggles are especially difficult at Christmas time.

The Charles County Sheriff’s Office Corrections Division and the Charles County Correctional Officers Association collected the gifts — worth about $2,500 — and donated them to the Children’s Aid Society to deliver to children in need.

Pam Vahle and Carol Jackson, chairwoman and vice chairwoman, respectively, of the Children’s Aid Society’s board of directors, accepted the donations on the organization’s behalf.

The corrections division and the corrections officers association collects gifts for the Children’s Aid Society each year.
