If that’s a federal prison the they get sent somewhere in Iowa I think. On each prisons Website there is a link of how and where to send money and an address of where to send in money orders.

US Post office money orders are posted as soon as they are received at the Iowa lockbox. All others are placed on a 15 day hold before the inmate can use the funds.

The link works for me, so it may be something on your computer that is blocking it.
https://www.bop.gov/inmates/communications.jsp#money

Here's what it says about payments by mail.

Sending funds using the United States Postal Service

Inmates can receive funds at a BOP-managed facility, which are deposited into their commissary accounts. If you would like to send an inmate funds through the mail, you must use the United States Postal Service.

Please read and follow these steps carefully:

Only Send a Money Order
Obtain a money order and include both the inmate's:
Full committed name
AND complete eight-digit register number.

Non-postal money orders and non-government checks will be placed on a 15-day hold.

Wait until an inmate has physically arrived at a Federal Bureau of Prisons' facility.

Locate Inmate Whereabouts

Obtain a money order.

Send the money order to our central processing location.

Federal Bureau of Prisons
Insert Valid Committed Inmate Name
Insert Inmate Eight-Digit Register Number
Post Office Box 474701
Des Moines, Iowa 50947-0001
