    I live in NJ when i was on vacation in FL i sent my husband a food package which took 12 to get to NY well because i used a po box as my return address they rejected the package if i was to use my home address and it got returned someone would take it right of my steps. Come to find out though because of how it was shipped it will go back to FL the post office it was sent from not my address(federal law) I called the post office which they were very helpful they changed the return address well the prison still rejected it. I spent $76 to ship it and there is $130 worth of food in the box. I called the prison and all they could say is have the inmate write a request asking why it was rejected again. i decided to look under the rules and regulations for incoming packages on NYDOC website I didn’t see anything that said inmates were NOT allowed to receive packages from a po box. If it is to be returned to the post office in florida then the return address i put on the box should mean nothing.
