Sending a Mail/Care Package
You should plan that any mail you send will be inspected by FCI McKean staff. However, marking it “special,” means that the mail you send can only be opened with the inmate in the room, so the prison staff could not take anything out without the inmate’s knowledge.
You can also inquire at the prison if the inmate you are looking for as access to an email account; some inmates at the FCI McKean can now use email.
There are a few different ways you can send money to be added to an inmate’s commissary account.
While you cannot send cash or checks, you can send a money order through the mail. Make the inmate’s full name and eight digit register number are listed on the money order to ensure it reaches the right inmate.
A quick and easy way to get money to an inmate is by Money gram. Sending funds this way will be accessible to an inmate within hours. To get set up call 814-362-8900 or go to the Money gram website to get an account setup.
You can also send money through Western Union if you have the inmate's eight digit register number with no spaces or dashes and the inmate's last name (example: 12345678DOE). You can set an account up at Western Union by calling 1-800-634-3422 or by visiting the Western Union website.
