    Default Care Packages for Stillwater?

    There is quite a bit of information here, but I'm wondering if it's possible to send a care package (for Christmas) to the max Stillwater facility?

    Does anyone have a list of approved vendors that I can go through? Or should I contact the warden (or is there someone better I should contact, so as not to annoy the warden?)

    No need to contact the warden for this. Go online and check the rules for packages. Not sure if you mean a care package that you put together as that is how I generally think of care packages. This is not allowed. For my friend's facility, I can choose a book from an approved vendor. Inmates are only permitted a certain number of packages each year. They usually want to purchase this on their own as it usually includes food and hygiene items. What about a calendar? I found both of my friends were appreciative of this. It's that time, too. If you send it, though, be sure to read about the allowable weight. A calendar is too heavy to send as one package and so I have to take the staples out of the center and send it in two packages.

    I certainly don't want to limit their ability to get what they need, I hadn't even thought about the possibility of packages being limited to a set number each year. Does that include books, or is that different? Thank you, by the way, for responding.

    My pen pal has mentioned (on several occasions) that he has never traveled, but always wanted to. I'm going to take him on a virtual tour through photographs. I've traveled quite a bit and I'm always coming home with two or three memory cards worth of pictures (thousands of images). I know he can get up to twenty pictures per envelope, I'm going to give him a tour of the more exciting and beautiful places I've been - along with descriptive stories. It's not the same as going there yourself, but I'm hoping he likes it anyway.
