The My Care Pack store is partnered with Canteen Correctional Services, a company that specializes in providing support services for facilities and obtaining good selling prices for its clients. shares the mission of getting good products to inmates, but sent from family members or friends.

In the online shop you will find many categories of products that might come in handy for some inmate. Different kinds of snacks, entertainment gadgets such as a portable radio, sets of clothing, medicine, even phone time for making calls, are some of the things that can be ordered for the recipient. You can also find health and beauty items either for women or men, stationary objects, puzzles and more. The categories and number of products contained in them vary according to the location of the facility where you are sending them to.

Some restrictions apply to orders, though. For example, you are not able to send more than one package per week, and prepaid credit cards can’t be used either. The accepted cards are Visa, American Express or Mastercard. Should you order an item not allowed in the facility where the inmate is, My Care Pack will try to find an allowed substitute product. In case this can’t be achieved, you will be credited the amount you paid. The same thing happens when you order an item that is out of stock.

A search tool for finding the inmate you want to send something to is also available, by name or ID number. However, orders must always be placed under an inmate?s ID number, so make sure to get that right.
