Wink Spring Food Packages

I didnt know how many of you were aware, but the GDOC is allowing us to order Spring food packages for our loved ones. I saw it on the website last week and I asked my husband about it Tuesday night, but he didnt know anything about it! He called back last night and said that they got the memo on Wednesday morning! The process is the same as the Christmas packages and the first day to order is this coming Monday. They will be delivered before Father's Day!! Just wanted to let you all know!!! Have a great weekend!!!

Yes, I saw that too! I guess it will be like the Christmas package and will be the only way they can get a package in June. My step son didn't know anything either.

The order form is now online. You can get to it through the GDOC website. It is basically the same as the Christmas package, but has a few more things on it.

Calhoun got their papers for this as well. They led my man to think its because Calhoun is turning into a smoke free place. But it doesn't matter to me it gives me a chance to send him tasty food!! Our list is almost the same as Christmas but more yummy stuff on it. Even though mine always picks the yucky seafood! LOL Thanks For Sharing I was going to ask him until I got his letter wallago

Yes, I believe all state prisons in Georgia are doing the packages. My husband also had the feeling that it was because all prisons are about to be smoke-free. Whatever the reason, I am glad they can get a little extra.

This is nice!!! I'm so glad you ladies get to send them a little extra! Maybe they'll start doing it every 3-4 months! I'm sure the guys will enjoy that!

I mailed in my order and money order three weeksago , no confirmation email. I have been calling every other day for the past two weeks, they had no record of it. Finally, today they have received it, yet it still doesn't reflect it on their website, nor have they emailed me a confirmation. Is anyone else experiencing thiis?

Update: They gave me the confirmation number and explained that it is only when you order online do you receive the e-mail confirming they have received your order. I called back a few days later and spoke to another rep and all specified the same conf#. If he doesn't receive it, I will post.

Conpal-
Thanks for the response. Our loved ones will feel "especially" special when they get these packages. It would be nice if they allowed it quarterly. I believe they are going to start using this vendor for non-food purchases in the future.

My husband has not received his, but he did hear through the grapevine that they may get them on Friday. I got a confirmation email last week that said it was shipped out on the 3rd, so hopefully, they will get them this week!

When they first announced the spring packages would be available, I recall they said packages would be delivered by Fathers Day. I'm sure the inmates will get them next week.

Default Other packages dates

Do you if there are any dates for packages? Also, do you anything about the IRP and if so how long were they sentenced before they went.
