More about Epsilon Sigma Alpha: Being the Omega Pi chapter of the national service sorority, Epsilon Sigma Alpha has been a blessing to say the least. Nationwide, ESA is the third largest donor to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  Our sisterhood comes together each year to not only better the community of Greenville, but to also raise as much money as we possibly can for the hospital. We live by the motto "for the kids!" Our goal is that one day these children will be able to cross the finish line with us.
