A man bought $540 in cookies so these Girl Scouts could get out of the cold

But a man in SC recently went the extra mile for the little girls who sell the cookies.

But shortly after, he returned and bought the rest of the girls' stock, to the tune of $540, just to get them out of the cold.

Dillard, whose 8-year-old daughter is a member of the troop, was with the girls as they participated in the annual, beloved cookie sale outside a local supermarket.

"He came back to the table and said "pack up all of your cookies".

According to a Facebook post, the man originally stopped at the girls' stand and bought seven boxes; he gave the girls $40 and told them to keep the change.

Speaking with CBS News, Dillard said the two young girls sold 221 boxes of cookies on Friday and the quantity the man had purchased would have taken the troop another day or so to sell.

Kayla Dillard, one of the leaders of Troop 1574, revealed the man's kindness on Facebook, calling him an "amazing soul".

"It was about 34 degrees outside that night and we were there for about two hours already before he came", she told the outlet. Gave the girls $40, told them to keep the change.

"As a troop dad who knows many cold days at cookie booths, I have to say, this guy is a HERO!"

In all, Dillard said the unknown man spent $540 on cookies.
