In 1981, The Charmettes, Incorporated adopted a national thrust to eradicate cancer in our lifetime. In addition to our cancer awareness and education programs, we have contributed more than $600,000 to the Howard University Cancer Center in Washington, D.C., to support cancer research and services. In 2006, the chemotherapy infusion center was named, "The Charmettes, Inc. Gwendolyn B. Rodgers Chemotherapy Infusion Suite", in honor of the Charmettes long term generous support.
Today, The Charmettes, Incorporated is a nationally recognized women’s community service organization known for blazing trails and making a difference in the lives of families in our communities. With 20 chapters active throughout Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., we are poised for even greater accomplishments in the future.
