Hi there! Your loved one will be getting the word (and forms) in the next month or so...It was great last year and you can order them up to $100 worth of goodies. I had my husband send me his form with everything marked that he wanted and then I ordered it online. If I recall correctly he got it mid-December and it lasted him through April...Hope this helps and when I find out more I will definitely post! All the Best ~ T. :thumbsup:

What can you send? Can you only do this through your loved one or is there a website to order?

You can not personally send anything...It is done through a company that the NC DOC system uses every year and it is all food type items.

As in my previous post your loved one should be getting the info in the next month or so...once the info is given out, you can order online with a credit card or through the mail with a money order.

Hope this helps!

The Memo is out - contract is NOT with Security Plus Packaging this year it is with Union Supply Direct http://www.unionsupplydirect.com/

You can also order by mail, by phone, and by fax.

As with last year - Minimum order is $10 and Maximum order is $100 from all sources.

The web site is NOT up and working as yet but hopefully will be by October 11th

So will the inmates get a form to fill out for what they want that they can send home or do I need to make a list of what can be ordered and send it to him once the site is up?

My husband is on the back log for a transfer but not knowing when he's going. What happens if I order his package to where he's at now and then he gets transfered will he still get his package?

My husband is at Mountain View Correction. He still hasn't gotten the order form for the Christmas package and he was told that they were the only facility not getting them because they had peppers in them. Is this true...and can they do that?

I believe it would be just like the mail situation, that it would be forwarded to the facility where he is transferred to...I'm sure 2021 or others will chime in if this is not the case...;)

I think it is up to each individual facility, but I would definitely call and inquire about it! Keep us posted though!

Ok,
#1 - this is a NC DOC-wide program. The facilities will get the posters and pamphlets at various days and times but ALL should have them by today, 10-11-2010.
#2 - There should be no peppers available
#3 - The packages will be delivered during the 2nd week of Dec. Just prior to that will be a "transfer-slowdown" and a last check by the company of where all Inmates are located. If he/she happens to be moved during the slow-down the package will follow.
#4 - Not ALL Inmates are eligible for this program and not ALL Inmates have access to microwaves (items are marked, if microwavable).

Hi everyone!

Am I the only one that can't complete the order? Once I am on the "Order Summary" page and click on "Continue to checkout", the website gets blocked. I can't access to the following "Payment info" page to get my order completed. :(

You may want to call them directly today since it is the last day to order...Good luck! ;)
