Urbandale Lions Club was chartered on September 14, 1945 and has been an active supporter of community activities.  Lions Park and the Ralph Whitten Shelter House as well as the Lions Head at the Urbandale High School Athletic Field were built by the Urbandale Lions Club.  Urbandale Lions have supported such projects and programs as the UHS all-purpose track,  the Lions Park  Gazebo, youth groups, Scouts, State and local projects for the blind, Community Service Awards,  School athletics, Urbandale Dollars for Scholars, Little League, Quest Program, Character Counts, girl’s softball, ice hockey, DMARC and The Urbandale Food Pantry, the Leader Dogs for the Blind Program, State Fair Older Iowans Music Contest,  Taylor House Hospice, Hope Ministries , equipment for the Urbandale Police and Fire Departments and many others.  The Club is very active in the KidsSight Program which involves photographing the eyes of 2 to 5 year olds so they can be interpreted by staff at KidsSight in Iowa City to detect vision problems early.  A number of members are involved in the Iowa Lions Tissue Transport Relay to insure that donated corneas arrive at the Iowa Lions Eye Bank in a timely fashion, there they are processed and sent the world over for transplantation.   The Club has an active program to provide glasses and hearing aids free of charge to many children and adults in the community who would otherwise do without.  Cooperation with other civic groups has been an important part of the success of Lions Club projects.  Major fund raising projects include Homecoming-Pancake Day, Fourth of July Bingo, and Fourth of July Fireworks Buttons Sales .

The Urbandale Lions Club has sponsored other Lions Clubs such as the Urbandale Breakfast Club. The Urbandale Lioness Club, and the Urbandale High School LEO’S.
