National service projects

In 1972, ESA adopted St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as its first international service project. Since that time, ESA has raised more than 175 million dollars in cash and pledges for the hospital, becoming its largest third-party donor.

In the early 1980s, ESA adopted Easterseals as an international project and has raised millions of dollars over the years in support of local Easter Seals centers and camps.
Throughout our history, ESA has expanded our reach with several hands-on service projects on a national and international basis. Projects like Hats for Hope assist the homeless; ESA for Literacy promotes literacy for all ages; Strike Out Domestic Violence promotes awareness of the issue and support for victims of all ages; Warm Welcome supports newborns and their parents; and Hope for Heroes helps meet the needs of military personnel and veterans. All these programs have been introduced nationally, while being sustained locally by individual members and community chapters.
