Items that can be sent to inmates through Union Supply include clothes, tennis shoes, health and beauty items and food. Some inmates qualify to have packages that consist of electronics like CD players, radios and televisions.
People can choose to send an inmate quarterly packages that consist mainly of food, health and beauty items and clothing. Inmates must qualify to receive such packages. Inmates must be classified within certain privilege groups to determine how many pounds of the quarterly package are allowed each quarter. Select religious items may be included in a chosen quarterly package.
Certain correctional facilities allow inmates items referred to as Special Purchase Items. These items consist mainly of walkmans, CD players and other electronic devices. These orders have no package or weight size restriction and can be purchased at any time of the year.
Union Supply Direct also offers clothing items for inmates ready to be integrated back into society. This package allows customers to send clothing with name brands such as Levis, Adidas, Dickies, Nike and Russell. These packages are usually required to be received by the inmate within 30 days of parole, but each facility may have different rules regarding the Dress Out Package, so customers should check with the facility for more information.
