Each state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank type account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not provided by the correctional facility.

Friends, family, or other people can deposit money to these accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send prisoners money in the postal service and must send funds to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps written below:

The deposit must be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds.
