Sunday Anderson Westside Senior Center is located in the heart of the Westside. Sunday Anderson, for whom the Center was named, was a veteran politician and Legislative member. Because of the strong desire and dedication to help improve the lifestyles of citizens residing on the Westside, on June 17, 1978, The Sunday Anderson Westside Senior Center opened its doors, and has been major focal point for those 60 + in the community for 39 years.
Sunday Anderson Westside Senior Center has the opportunity to service many participants from various backgrounds. The diversity of the participants only adds to the appeal of the center. We welcome new members and look forward to providing quality services geared towards those who attend.

Volunteering is the “lifeblood” of the Senior Center. Volunteers play a critical role in delivering quality programming as well as providing opportunities for fit, active and engaged seniors. As the gap between available resources and the needs of seniors continues to grow, Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services believes the role of volunteering is important and we are always looking to add new programs at the Center. The Center has a wide variety of opportunities for all ages to volunteer time and talents. To find the volunteer opportunity that best suits your needs, skills, and time availability, simply talk to the staff.
