Capalaba Central senior marketing manager Teresa Gomez said the centre had many regular customers who attended its welcome desk each week to pick up a mobility scooter or the local newspaper.

"Many of these people are elderly or have a disability, and we wanted to let them know we had their backs, and we were still here for them, so we created care packs for them," Ms Gomez said.

"Capalaba Central retailers quickly came on board and supplied products at cost price.

"We filled 120 care packs with food and essential items to offer a helping hand to Redlands Coast seniors and other disadvantaged community members."

Ms Gomez said essential workers also felt the kindness with the delivery of free coffees.

"These coffees are a thank you and positivity boost for our workers at the coalface of COVID-19, and again help Capalaba Central retailers to keep operating," she said.

Mayor Karen Williams said it was heart-warming and inspiring to see such acts of kindness during these difficult times.

"These initiatives cut to the heart of who we are on Redlands Coast," she said.

"They help support and connect some of our most vulnerable community members and say thank you to those on the frontline.

"This is wonderful to see."
