Hello ladies! Have any of you ordered magazine subscriptions for your guys? Mine used to get Rolling Stone and American Curves at other prisons and really enjoyed them. Does anyone know if those are allowed here? Thanks!

Yes, I have Men's Health. All facilities allow periodicals, it is in the Title 15.

Alright ladies, so I know I will have to wait until he's out of his orientation but he already sent me his form to order him a package. So have any of you lovely ladies ordered a recent package from Access Securepak and found out that they no longer carry shoes nor like sell tank tops or anything of clothing except thermals? I called them and chatted with them via online and I was told the same. I just want to make sure I'm not being bullshitted or because their website changed slighty I'm not using it correctly. ha I hope not but I've ordered packages from them in the past.

Really , no more shoes, that's odd . They will lose more business if that's so. These last few times, we have used Union Supply, and Walkenhorst's. I used Access Securepak religiously, but stopped since there website was hacked and they notified there consumers a year later to check the credit card, we last used to order a package. The website has been down for a minute while they straightened out the matter. I ordered shoes from Union Supply this last quarter. I have not used Access for the last 6 months

Okay,so I ordered a catalog and finally spoke to someone who knew what sounded right and explained because his status has not changed, I cant see those items yet until his status changes probably until he's out of orientation. I received the same letter from them because I ordered from them religiously too. That people's info was stolen and to keep a look out on my account. Thanks for the response.

That makes sense. He is still in orientation.

Mail can be slow as well, it is spring break, maybe staff took off to be with there families , and has slowed the mailroom down.

No, pens/pencils are not allowed in a mail package. I would call records in the morning to verify his housing. You can call ext 121.

You can send him a postcard, those get to them pretty quick..Keep the faith.
Continue to write to him, I'm sure you will hear from him soon.
update: i finally heard from him! yay! i was so excited when i opened the mail box today. but then i read his letter and it made me sad. hes gotten all my letters, but doesnt write because he said its better to forget his past life, family, friends, etc. and to only focus on the life he has now because its the life he will have forever. i would like to still write even if he doesnt want to write back just so he knows that he has family that cares, but i dont want to make him sad

Glad to read your update. I'm sorry to hear he is going thru this, but some men do. They withdraw from family and friends. Just keep writing him and letting him know how things are at home. I'm sure he will come around, it may take a minute but he will. He is lucky to have you, good luck

Yes, if I were you I would continue to write. Our family kinda went through something similar with my uncle when my dad, his brother, passed away. He totally cut us off. He now writes, and we plan on visiting him soon. He said he couldn't deal with the pain, but we never quit writing to him, and didn't hear from him for years. He now thanks us for not giving up on him.

I would use the old fashion Money Order, you can get one from the post office. I think for .90 cents. I only know of these 2 safe ways.

1 pkg every quarter, a total of 4 per year. You can order on line, by mail, or via phone. This is a list of approved vendors, he can choose from. There are others, but these seem to be the most popular. Once he sends you a list you can order it directly from the vendor..

Packages R Us www.packagesrus.com
West Covina, CA (866) 303-7787

Packages are mailed out quarterly such as :


1st Quarter: Jan Feb March
2nd Quarter: Apr May June
3rd Quarter: July Aug Sept.
4th Quarter: Oct Nov Dec.


You have from the first day of the quarter to the last day of that quarter. Any day, any month. As long as the package is mailed during that quarter and that quarter only. Right now they are on 2nd quarter packages. You have until June 30th to send a pkg for 2qrtr. They are beginning to take pre-orders for 3rd qrtr which begin July 1st.
