Warby Parker and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Are Giving Back to Children in Need

Warby Parker is giving back by donating opticals and eye exams to kids at 130 New York City schools.

You can’t help but love a brand like Warby Parker. Not only does it produce some of the most well-made eyewear at affordable price points, it also uses its resources to give back to the community.

According to WWD, the eyewear brand is teaming up with NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to give the city’s children the gift of vision. About 130 schools will benefit from the new program, which will donate approximately 20,000 eyeglasses as well as 65,000 eye exams to students in need over the next four years.

"This is a great new partnership—one of many we are building between homegrown tech companies like Warby Parker and the city to invest in our young people and our future," de Blasio told WWD.

Warby Parker co-CEO Neil Blumenthal added, "Our goal is to provide these students with their first pair of glasses for free so they can experience the immediate and direct positive impact that a pair of glasses can have on their life, especially academics."
