FLASH Spring Coffee Fundraiser!
Important update about the coffee fundraiser.
Due to the ongoing Corona virus crisis, we are asking for Scouts to suspend any in-person coffee fundraising activity. It is fine to take orders over the phone, online or through email. Coffee order forms can be found on the website if you wish to email them to someone. Individuals buying coffee should mail you a check made out to your unit for the amount owed. The unit can then submit final payment and order forms also through the mail. This may take more time so we are extending the deadline for orders/funds to April 23rd.
Since this situation is evolving, we will continue to reassess this program as time moves forward. The safety of you and your family is of paramount concern so please understand if there are future changes to this program. Thank you and remember to keep yourselves physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight!
Are you looking for a last-minute way to help pay for registration or camp fees?
The Leatherstocking Council is offering a great way to raise money through a brand-new fundraiser. Coffee! Everyone loves coffee (especially the leaders!) and It is a great tie-in to the camping programs we run in the council. With multiple flavors, k-cups and merchandise, there is something for everyone.
This is not a mandatory fundraiser by the Council, but a tool Scouts and units can choose to use to offset camping and registration costs. By partnering with Utica Coffee Roasters in Utica and B&K Coffee in Oneonta, we are offering the region’s best-known brands making the coffee practically sell itself!
To make sure we support our local businesses and to ease distribution, the Adirondack Foothills and Powderhorn Districts will be selling Utica Coffee Roasters coffee and the Deerslayer and Foothills districts will be selling B&K Coffee. See below for details.
Since this is a FLASH sale, you can start selling right away by downloading the order form below from your corresponding district.
Important Sale/Delivery Dates:
- Unit orders/funds Due by Mail - April 23rd.

How do we pay?
Individual Scouts turn in their order forms and money to their unit leader. We strongly recommend assigning a volunteer to manage the unit sale, just like having a popcorn colonel in the fall. The unit leader will then fill out the unit order form (downloadable from below) and turn in that form with a check made out to Leatherstocking Council for the cost of all the products ordered, less the profit to the unit. (Total Cost – Profit) = Amount owed to the Council in a check or paid at the office with a Card.
