Default Care Packages: Who do I order from?

So my bf said you can order the care packages now so I went on both union supply and access and I'm having no luck? Union says you can't order until October 3rd and access won't even give me the prison as an option. There's like 7 choices all are county jails. Am I doing something wrong. It says you can order on access but doesn't give the prison as a choice???

Help?

Ok I have used Access Secure Pak website. You basically can put together the package by picking which items you want to put in there. You can spend from $15 but no more than $125. Each year they have 4 quarters. During this time it will tell you the time you can start and the ending time meaning the last date you have to order your stuff. If I am not mistaken Jails and Prisons are on different time frames. I believe the 3rd quarterly was early september so you have to wait for the opening for the fourth which should be soon for prisons. The fourth one hasn't started yet!

Each facility is different with what their packages can consist of. Here in VA our care packages are only food. They have to get all other things from the commissary. Where your LO is they may be able to get a package that includes food, clothes, ect.. so it just depend on where they are but yes! some can get different things. Jails and Prisons even get different things. Jails get things that prisons don't or the opposite. Where is he located at?

Order start date for the fall/winter package started October 3rd and ends Nov. 4, 2016. Order early if you can, because some items run out and they do not restock.

Well, they went to monthly back in the day, to quarterly. Then, went away for a long time. Back then, we got a list and bought the items (within specs) and mailed it in.

Then, a couple years ago we could order once a quarter and then there was 2 we could order from. Now, we've heard it's going to go only 2 x a year or maybe even annually.

But, nothing substantial yet. It's a wait and see thing.

My son is still in reception in Florida so I am assuming I need to wait until he gets to his assigned prison to know about the package. How many times a year can you order? What types of items are on the list

Thanks

they are going to let us order again Sept 27th so I think we have been able to order twice this year. Not totally sure about that though. There are two websites you can order from Union and Access. You can access both from the DOC website.

Is he in confinement?

Has he been transferred away from the reception center?

Just go to the website and put in the DC# if you can order it will let you order. If they get moved after the order is placed the order will find its way to them or you will get a refund.

Red face Package Program - Winter

I just ordered a package for my husband on the Union Supply site. At first I couldn't find him but I chatted with one of the union people on the site and they were able to help me find my husband. He called me to tell me to order some shoes & food from them. He doesn't know if this will be the last program or not so I want to make sure that I get one last order in before I cant order any more. The site says the ordering dates are sep 27- oct 27.

I hope this helps!
