Community help: Steve Habchi will give away fruit and vegetables to struggling residents.

A North Maclean business has brushed aside negative impacts of coronavirus to help support those in need.

Olley's Orange Country Market will give away four fruit and vegetable packs per week to a local family doing it tough.

Owner Steve Habchi announced in a Facebook video with Logan City Council candidate Scott Bannan that he would undertake the gesture to help residents doing it tough.

"We want to help people out there, because there are a lot of people struggling," Mr Habchi said.

"It's all about helping each other. We've got a lot of support from the community and we're going to try our best to help everyone.

"These are families that are really struggling, and they need help."

"We want to give away four a week, we might even do more."

Mr Bannan urged anyone struggling to get in touch and seek help.

"We're a strong community, but we're a proud community," he said.

"Don't be too proud. If you know someone who is too proud, who needs a hand, you can always call in for your mate.

"We really want to help local people.

"We really want to help the elderly, people who are stuck at home.

"We will keep social distancing. We can organise to have it dropped off safely."

All you have to do is get in contact with Mr Bannan. Message him on Facebook.

They will pick four trays every Friday.
