How To Send an NH Inmate Package

Besides writing a letter to an inmate and calling them whenever possible, inmate packages are another great way to show them you care.

Each U.S. state, including New Hampshire, proposes specific regulations when it comes to the type and contents of such parcels. The article that follows will help you understand the essential rules and procedures that apply to sending packages to New Hampshire prisoners.

NH Inmate Package Rules and Regulations

You can’t give packages to inmates during the visitation or send the parcels to the facility where they are located by yourself. They can receive only packages sent by approved third-party vendors, which means that you need to place an order with the supplier and address it to the desired facility.

Union Supply Direct is the only approved inmate package provider for all institutions under the jurisdiction of the New Hampshire Department of Corrections. The company’s online shop allows you to create customized packages containing various products regardless of the facility the inmate is in.

You also don’t need to worry about whether you are allowed to send particular items, as every product you can see in the Union Supply Direct online shop is pre-approved by the NH Department of Corrections. The inmate will be able to enjoy anything you purchase for them unless they have active mail restrictions—make sure to inquire about this before you place an order.

What Items Can You Put in NH Inmate Care Packages?

Union Supply Direct has a wide product range which includes the following categories:

  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Clothes
  • Glasses
  • Drawing
  • Watches
  • Stationery
  • Electronics
  • Board games
  • Health & beauty
  • Religious items
  • Household items

The company's department in charge of New Hampshire correctional facilities doesn’t currently offer the possibility of ordering foods and drinks. This might change in the future as the list of available products is continually expanding.

When Will Your Package Reach the Inmate?

Prisoners usually get packages during the regular commissary distribution day. To find out the exact day of the week when prisoners in the particular NH correctional facility get their mail, contact the specific institution.

General inmate mail rules and regulations also state that each piece you send must be examined by jail officials to make sure the package contains only approved items. Such procedures might affect the estimated delivery time frame, and the whole process might take up to three weeks from the date of the shipment.
