How many inmates receive monetary help? Does an inmate need money or are they providing them what they need?
The prison provides the basics necessary to do their time without any problems. However, they will not be able to make telephone calls or purchase anything at the commissary. We would guess that a good percentage of inmates get money sent in for the little extras that help make their time easier to do. If you can send money, it would be appreciated but do not send money you do not have (like taking a loan or putting it on your credit card).
