Metro Optics Bronx NY - Parkchester, Westchester Square, Hunts Point, and Throggs Neck
Community Engagement and Events
This past holiday season as Small Business Community Partner to Bronxworks, we collected toys at all of our Bronx locations for children in their programs. All of our generous donors received a $50 Savings Card toward a future eyewear purchase at Metro Optics.
As a Bronx-based business for 40 years, community is at the heart of our service philosophy.
Metro Optics supports numerous nonprofit organizations around the Bronx whose missions advance the eyehealth and overall health & wellness of its residents, and their enjoyment of our vibrant borough, as well as initiatives to promote a sustainable environment for local business.
Metro staff and leadership attend and participate in several events throughout the year to raise awareness of and funds for important local institutions and endeavors. Our leadership team has also been recognized for our contributions to the Bronx community.

National Sunglasses Day
We partnered with Bronx family and lifestyle blogger BronxMama to raise awareness of the importance of protecting eyes from UV damage at all ages with a fun social media contest! On 6/27/17, "CappyTann" (a.k.a. Bronx photographer and event planner Harry, won new shades from Metro Optics to protect his eyes in all seasons, whenever spending time outdoors!
