GOD BLESS all our Families and loved ones locked away.

It is a program where one or more loved ones of inmates can purchase UP TO $100 (previous years limit) of different foods and snacks which are delivered to the facilities prior to the holidays. In recent years they have also authorized a summer program.

The inmates will get the lists soon and can mail them home for the orders to be sent in. It is a welcome change from usual canteen items. The orders must be in by a certain date, and each inmate is limited to $100 total no matter how many people order for him/her. I did not order last time since Mr is now home so I will not get the email this year but someone will post the link to the website.

The inmates on Unit 32 have their lists, they are not on the MDOC website yet though. Here is the link ready for when it does come on-line: http://www.accesscatalog.com/shop/lo...m?ProgramID=36

Thanks for the info.


To avoid confusion it is not posted on MDOC website, but through the link JJS811 gave. From there people will use a drop down to find their facility. NOT all facilities participate and not all inmates are eligible.
I do not recall off hand the eligibility but if anyone has concerns, read back through other package threads. I am sure one of us posted it once or twice before. If I have time later I will give a link or post the info.

Facilities change as to participation, no way to tell. The 3 MDOC facilities likely are participating.

Thanks Mrs. Glamma! My brother is getting a little depressed about being stuck at CMFC for over a month. He's watching people come and go, but he's still there. I'm trying to do all I can to keep his spirits up. He called this weekend and sounded down, but I guess there's not much to be "up" about.

Does anyone know when they receive these packages? Is it before Thanksgiving, or around Christmas?

Around the early part of December (I think). I am trying to think back to last year, and I am sure it was early December.

A bit off topic but want to let you know My Hon was there for 6 weeks. It is hard on them there with everything up in the air, not settled in anywhere. Hang in there.

Default Got the Holiday List

Just wanted to update. My brother (in CMCF3) sent his Holiday List to his wife. She called this week. I also went on the website and it's up and running.

All the orders need to be postmarked by November 27th-deadline to order is December 4th and they are supposed to be delivered 2nd week of December.
Pretty sad that they are only allowed to receive food.....
