The DSC is now actively involved in numerous community projects.
Food Bank Drive
The DSC is now organizing a food drive to help those in need, through the Redland Community Centre. They have a list of a basic meal pack that includes items like, Long Life Milk, Tin of Spaghetti, Tin of Baked beans, Packet of Pasta Dinner, Pasta sauces (Tuna Bake/Bolognaise), Dried Pasta, Pancake Shaker, Tin of Corn & Corn, Instant Noodels (5 pack), Biscuits (Scotch Finger), Jam spread, etc. These items are collected regularly by the Redland Community Centre for distribution in their emergency packages according to their programme for assisting those temporarily in need.
