Default Sending Care Packages?

My fiance was telling me there is a website you can send them care packages through. I forgot to get the flier though on my way out today! Anyone know what the websites address is? Oh and he is in Bexar County Jail right now!

To my knowledge you cannot send care packages to county jails or prisons here in texas.

As far as i know, you can't send care packages in Texas. They will refuse it, and send it back at the inmates cost.

Default Bexar County Jail

My husband is also in Bexar County Jail, maybe they know each other. My husband is a Christian, and loves teaching others about God, some guys in there call him Rev.

Default Care Package for Inmates Website - Bexar County Jail

Could someone please post the care package website for Bexar County?
Thank you very much!!!

Hi this2willpass and Welcome to the Texas Forum. I've read were a couple of members stated they've sent care packages but I didn't think you were allowed. You could always call the jail and ask them if it's allowed. I'm sorry I could not be of more help and hopefully others will be along soon. Hang in there and Blessings as always.

Thank you soooo much, Donna, for your reply and the nice welcome letter! My brother that is in "Bexar County" told me on phone about it. Others in jail there were getting them. I'm seen several "care package" places on the Web, but have not found one in Texas yet. I will try to call jail and hopful I will find out something. This is a great, informative site here and I wish all the best!
Can I post the info, once I do find out something?
Dot

Yes, Please do post any informaton about Care Packages being allowed. If it's an advertising Web Site they'll need to Contact PTO for Ad permission. Dot, you can post the address (jail) where to send them and what is allowed in the Care Packages. Welcome Again and blessings as always.

Here is the website for care packages to the Bexar County Jail:

http://www.icaredirect.com/en-US/Cor...exarCommissary

It is only for Bexar County Jail. You can only send one care package a week! It is definitely a lot cheaper this way!! We would buy him his food and send it to him. Then put money on his books for his hygiene products, stamps, envelopes, etc.

Yes the website is http://www.icaredirect.com/en-US/Cor...exarCommissary everything on there is allowed becuase it goes through Aramark, which is the company that does the Commisary. They usually get it the next day. There are 10 different packages to choose from and they cost between $16-$40 depending on which one you choose.

I ordered a care package last week, but this week the links aren't working? Bexar County isn't even listed. Does anyone know what is going on?
