According to Idaho Department of Corrections they are looking for any color elastic bands, cotton fabric of any color or pattern, thread and pins. They also stated that they have collection boxes outside of the IDOC's Central Office at 1299 N. Orchard in Boise or you can also donate at the Pocatello Women's Correctional Center, the St. Anthony Work Cam, North Idaho Correctional Institute and the Idaho Correctional Institution in Orofino.

I imagine you could also donate by mailing those things if you have them. It does not specifically say that but I don't see why you couldn't.
