KOGO is team of dedicated volunteers, with over 10,000 knitters within Australia.

Founder Ros started KOGO in 2005, when her and her team of volunteer knitters decided to knit scarves and beanies for disadvantaged children.

These items were distributed to schools and publicity in the local press led to an overwhelming response. KOGO grew quickly and has developed into the major charity it is today. KOGO distributes over 100,000 items to vulnerable people within the community each year.

Mission Statement

KOGO enhances social inclusion through volunteering and providing hand knitted items of warmth and comfort to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community.

Here at Peak Pharmacies, we support KOGO by operating as a "Drop Off Location." This means, if you would like to get involved you can simply drop it off to any Peak Pharmacy across Geelong and KOGO will collect it. See below for items KOGO currently need:

  • Scarves

  • Beanies

  • Socks

  • Gloves (including fingerless)

  • Adult blankets (approx. 1.6m x 1.2m)

  • Knitted squares that can be assembled by volunteers to make blankets

  • Children’s jumpers and cardigans

  • Knitted toys

  • Cot blankets (1m x 1.2m, SIDS guidelines)

  • Pram blankets

  • Baby cardigans (not jumpers)

  • Baby beanies

  • Baby booties

Please note, there are items that KOGO are unable to accept as donations. You can find a list of those items, and more information about KOGO on their website by clicking the button below.
