Default What size posting box can I send to Grand Valley?

Probably a silly question but does Grand Valley have strict rules about the size of the box we can send? I'm told 12x12x12 but for the life of me, I can't find one this size. I know it's nuts but I've looked all around but can't find anything close...well close but not exact. Even Canada Post doesn't sell that size.

My experience - at a different institution - was that they didn't care about the size of the box and many guys had 2 or even 3 boxes sent to them. But CSC being what it is, you can never be sure that the rules will be the same from one place to another.

Ok, finally got through to Grand Valley. Box can be up to 18 " and inmates can receive up to five boxes - within the first 30 days. After that, I'm not sure. The website doesn't contain any of this information - very little for that matter.

Hi there: well she didn't supply a lot of information. I did get through to the office & was told she could receive a total of five boxes - 18 x 18 within the first 30 days. After that nada. They are allowed coloured clothing - her lawyer told me only white/black/grey - not true. They can have an 18" t.v. also. So fill up your boxes to the fullest - I ran out of time & couldn't send everything I wanted. It's still a learning process for me.
