Sigma Sigma Phi provides a variety of services to the community. For example, Sigma Sigma Phi has annual partnerships with Good Works and Athens Children’s Services. Most of the events are to raise money or services for charities in the Athens community. Sigma Sigma Phi members are strongly encouraged to hone their leadership skills in the Heritage College community, holding events that specifically targets fellow medical students, and in this way, further builds strong productive relationships among peers, and within the Heritage College family.

Each member of SSP commits to a minimum of 12 hours of service each semester for pre-clinical students (OMS-I and OMS-II) and 4 hours of service each semester for clinical students (OMS-III and OMS-IV) depending on class year. Additionally, the executive board plans to hold at least one service event each semester to help HCOM students get involved in the community.
