Man Spends $540 on Cookies to Get Scouts Out of Cold

South Carolina man buys every cookie from Girl Scouts outside store tells them to ‘get out of this cold

"This man purchased 7 packs of cookies", the viral Facebook post read. According to the Facebook post, which has been deleted, McGowan stopped at the girls' cookie stand and bought seven boxes of cookies; he gave the girls $40 and told them to keep the change. "Then he came back to the table and said, "Pack up all of your cookies".

A $540 cookie purchase has warmed Girl Scouts in more ways than one.

Even though consumers go insane for Girl Scout cookies, most people would not buy $540 worth - but that is exactly what this Good Samaritan did earlier this week.

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. "It was about 34 degrees outside that night and we were there for about two hours already before he came", cookie manager Kayla Dillard told CNN. This season the troop has surpassed their goal of 3,200 boxes - selling about 5,000 so far, according to Dillard.

In addition to the Lakers' struggles on defense, they also turned the ball over a ton against the Pelicans. Then, the team went out and faced a New Orleans Pelicans team without Anthony Davis and got blown out.

"That man is going to have a lot of friends today if he gives away those cookies", Kimberly Norton Kotecha wrote. She said he bought $540 worth of cookies so they would "get out of this cold".

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents were investigating McGowan for six months and planned on arresting him Tuesday, long before the photo of him smiling next to two Girl Scouts went viral.

'That man was just a very kind, honest and humble man who loves children'.
