NOT only do the staff at Holden Motorama Springwood sell cars, but they also help out struggling families in the Logan community.

This year they will help hundreds of families have a good Christmas by supporting The Reporter's Adopt-A-Family Christmas appeal.

On the floor of their showroom, sits a white Holden Ute which they will fill with food and donate to the Logan East Community Neighbourhood Association.

Now in their second year of helping the Adopt-A-Family appeal, Holden Motorama Springwood fleet sales manager Chris Guy said the business was more than happy to help.

"It's only something small for us but we know it does make a big difference to the community," Mr Guy said.

"We are also part of the local community, and us helping out other local businesses and organisations in the area is what we are about.

"Staff from throughout the whole Holden group will be donating items as well as us taking customer donations, so that should have the ute filled up pretty quickly."

Logan East Community Neighbourhood Association community development officer Julie Fursey said she was pleased with the ongoing support from Holden.

"This is a huge donation," Mrs Fursey said.

"We are really stoked that Holden has come back on board and are going to continue this partnership.

"This extra large donation is going to help so many families."

Five local community groups have partnered with The Reporter to help brighten up the festive season for families who are currently doing it tough.

Local organisations on board this year include the Logan East Community Neighbourhood Centre, Loganlea Community Centre, Kingston East Neighbourhood Group, Refuge in Logan for Women and Children Escaping Domestic Violence and the Upper Room Ministries.
