From the beginning in 2004 donated items have grown from 100 items made by family and friends into a huge charity supporting many people.  Donated items include scarves, beanies, blankets, children’s and baby’s clothing and toys. Garments are supplied to agencies that support people experiencing hardship of all types. In 2009 donations were sent to Bushfire victims, another project is baby sets for disadvantaged mums and this year the focus for NAIDOC week was an invitation to knitters to choose the colours Yellow, Red and Black for knitted items. Kogo has continued to grow and in 2019 distributed nearly 114,000 warm winter woollies to the most vulnerable in our community-an increase of 26 percent.  In 2020, Kogo distributed 72,000warm knits to people undergoing hardship, despite the fact COVID 19 pandemic shut Kogo down for half the year. The finished items are distributed through over 300 community partners organisations which deal with the myriad of people undergoing hardships.
