Personal Gift Boxes:

If you have a friend or relative currently serving at NYP, you can send them a gift box. The Canadian Border restricts how much can be sent from one person in the US to a person in Canada to $50 value. If you want to send more than $50 value gift box, you need to have friends or family members send the extra boxes with each not containing more than $50 value. If you want to send gift boxes to families serving at NYP, you could also send a box to each family member as long as each box contains no more than $50 value.

A form needs to be attached to each box and filled out. This form is available from your contact person or you can download and print it here.
