Default Sending packages to Elmira

Does anyone have any current info on sending stuff to Elmira? I know the basic stuff but just wondering if anything important has changed. Also can you send food and clothes in the same package?

Is he still in reception? If so, he cannot receive packages until the 31st day there. He can only get food and such through commissary.

"Additionally, an offender who is located in a "TV Facility" may only receive 2 food packages per calendar year from family, friends, or other personal sources, as well as items ordered directly by the offender from approved vendors. These packages may only contain food items and may not exceed 20 pounds. The following are classified as "TV Facilities":

The following facilities are classified as "TV Facilities":

Attica
Elmira
Five Points
Shawangunk
Southport Cadre
Wende
Clinton
Great Meadow
Upstate Cadre"

This is from the family handbook.

I believe this only applies to food packages and not clothing. If you go to the link I provided, the package directive is there for what they are allowed.

Scroll down in that section and you'll see the link to the directive.

Clinton is listed on here and things have changed there. My husband can get a package every month now of 35lbs and clothes. But they will only allow two packages per month because of the number of people there, so I would send it all together like I do.

You can now send 35lbs of food a month to Elmira even though they are a TV facility. Also you can now pay up to $80 dollars on footwear. Inmates no longer have to buy everything from an approved vendor. You can ship any item that they are allowed to have. My loved one is at Elmira and they just told me that. Hope that helps.
