Saw this info on the TIFA site and thought I would post it. Yet another delay it seems.
Huntsville: "Care" Package information released today! Click here for official message.
This is the latest information received from Eric Johnston, Commissary and Trust Fund, regarding "care packages".
The TDCJ Commissary and Trust Fund Department will soon initiate a direct purchase program for friends and family members to allow them to make online purchases for offenders. These purchases will be from the existing product line along with some new packaged items that will be added. Offenders can receive one direct purchase of up to $50 each calendar quarter. Offenders on commissary restriction will not be eligible to receive commissary items from a direct purchase. This will be accessible through a link on the Texas.gov website. The merchandise purchased online will be distributed to the offender from the commissary at their unit of assignment. Website development has been ongoing and the projected launch date is July 2012.
