Man buys lighted cookies for $ 540 and sends scared scouts to the house


Cookie mama-ger Kayla Dillard observed what she called a rare act of kindness Friday night while she was supervising two schoolgirls selling Girl Scout cookies in front of a grocery store in Greenville, S.C.

The 8 year old children were behind the stand for almost two hours when a man walked out of the BI-LO supermarket. He bought seven boxes of cookies and gave the girls $ 40 to tell them to keep the change, said Dillard, a co-troop leader.

The girls thanked him and he walked to the parking lot. A few minutes later, the same man, whom Dillard did not know, parked in the car in the dark.

"Wrap them. I'll take them all so you can get out of the cold, "he said, adding that he had seen the girls shaking, Dillard told the Washington Post during a phone interview.

He bought 121 boxes, for a total of $ 484. He gave $ 500 to the children. Once again, he did not want change.

"It has everything we had," said Dillard, including peanut butter cookies, peanut butter sandwiches, S'mores, lemonades and shortbread cookies.

Dillard also remembered two boys waiting to buy cookies. They had $ 4 between them – enough for a box – and wondered which one to buy. Dillard said the man had told the boys "to choose what they wanted in the boxes that he had bought".

According to the National Weather Service, it was about 50 degrees in Greenville on Friday night.

Girl Scout Troop # 1574 aimed to sell 3,200 parcels by March 17th. The girls exceeded their season goal with three more weekends of kiosk sales at local stores. Currently, the troupe has 5,000 sales.

The girls were "shocked", "really grateful" for this man's action and took a picture together, said Dillard. Her 8-year-old daughter, a member of the troupe, was supposed to be there but went to dance the daddy-girl dance.

"Her friend has arrived at her place for the night," said Dillard. "I'm just glad we came to meet him. Thank you."
