One man in South Carolina is really getting into the spirit of the season … Girl Scout cookie season, that is.

According to a Facebook post from Girl Scout leader Kayla Dillard, a man approached their cookie-selling stand on a cold night in Greenville, S.C., and ended up racking up quite a tab.

“This man purchased 7 packs of cookies. Gave the girls $40, told them to keep the change,” she wrote on the post. “Then he came back to the table and said ‘pack up all of your cookies. I’m taking them all so y’all can get out of this cold’ $540 he spent on cookies. What an amazing soul!!!!”

Though the post has racked up over 13,000 likes and 9,300 shares, Dillard has yet to identify the mystery Good Samaritan, according to CNN.

“It was about 34 degrees outside that night and we were there for about two hours already before he came,” she told the outlet. “We all were shocked. The girls were very excited and thankful.”

Girl Scout cookie season officially started on Jan. 2, with a brand-new cookie, gluten-free caramel chocolate chip, on the lineup. Since then, Girl Scouts across the country have been using their most creative tactics to sell out boxes — including one troop member who went viral after changing the lyrics to Cardi B’s “Money”, and another who used a shirtless picture of Jason Momoa to sell Samoas.
