Arlo Technologies, Inc. announced a campaign to help provide meals for vulnerable communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic through financial contributions to two Second Harvest Food Banks. Arlo hopes to help provide thousands of meals to those in need.

With each purchase of an Arlo Video Doorbell, or any Ultra or Pro 3 Security System, Arlo will help to provide 25 meals through Second Harvest of Silicon Valley and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

This program is in addition to Arlo’s donations of  N95 medical masks to local hospitals in the San Jose, Calif. and Cork, Ireland areas where Arlo is headquartered:  Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (San Jose, Calif.), Marymount University Hospital and Hospice (Cork, Ireland) and Ballally Primary Care Center (Dublin, Ireland).

“Our first area of focus with regards to COVID-19 has been to help protect first responders by donating urgently-needed N95 masks to local hospitals,” said Matt McRae, CEO of Arlo Technologies in a prepared statement. “But it quickly became clear to us that the unfolding tragedy also has a severe second-order impact on the ability for people to satisfy their most basic needs including food. The campaign benefitting Second Harvest Food Banks, together with the Arlo community, will support the critical safety net of meals for those who can’t get food for their families.”

“Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is so grateful to Arlo Technologies for their support of our mission to end hunger, especially now as we work to meet the increased needs of our community due to the negative economic impacts of COVID-19,” said Barbara Wartman, director of marketing and public relations.

Arlo Video Doorbells and Security Systems are being utilized as people shelter-in-place for checking in on loved ones, small business security, safety notifications, and to facilitate contact-free deliveries of supplies and meals.
