That's a lot of Girl Scout cookies!

A new Girl Scout record has been set by Lilly Bumpus of San Bernardino, California, who broke the national record for most cookies sold in a single season.

The 8-year-old sold a whopping 32,000 boxes in three months, per ABC7 News.

As a cancer survivor, she also collected a total of 5,000 boxes to donate to other children battling cancer this cookie season.

"I thought, 'Wow I never knew I could do that,'" the Girl Scout of four years said. "And it just meant so much to me to see that huge number. It's like the biggest number I've ever seen," she added.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Girl Scouts were not allowed to set up tables to sell in front of stores this year. Lily put up a stand in front of her home.

The publication notes that her dream is to donated proceeds towards childhood cancer research.

Lilly broke the 2017 record set by Charlotte McCourt, a girl scout from New Jersey, who sold over 25,000 boxes of cookies.

According to Food and Wine, prior to that, the record was held by 11-year-old Katie Francis in Oklahoma City who sold 18,107 boxes. She destroyed a 30-year-record held by "The Cookie Queen" Elizabeth Brinton, who sold 18,000 boxes in 1985 and has sold a total of 100,000 boxes during her time as a scout, per TIME.
