Gear Up Ministry

We need your help raising money to bring equipment and training to the local police departments and military units in the area of Quito Ecuador.
Gear Up Ministry is a non profit organization that exists to train, share equipment, and connect police, firefighters, and EMS professionals in international communities. 
Though many firefighters and EMS groups have travelled to Ecuador to support the ministry, we will be the first police officers to take part in this exciting ministry.
The first week of January officers Bill Laramee, Janet Lopez, Jesus Arocho, Tom ODonnell, and John Hall who represent both the the Amherst and Umass Amherst police departments will be travelling there to bring training and equipment.
This trip is being funded by our own good will and your generous donations.  Any amount is appreciated as we prepare for this great adventure.

With much gratitude.

Team Amherst Gear Up Minsistry
