|Weekly Feature: Local Business Partners|
As a non-profit organization, we often rely on the generosity of our friends and partners to help support our mission. Now, we feel it’s our time to give back, to recognize and support the small businesses that have been dramatically impacted by COVID-19 and that help support Whale Trust throughout the year.
Sherri Reeve, Maui Artist
Sherri Reeve Gallery and Gifts (Makawao, Hawaii)
To know Sherri Reeve is to know her generosity. Since the doors of her gallery first opened in 1997, she has supported Whale Trust –and countless other Maui based non-profit organizations — including her beloved Hospice Maui, where she currently serves on the board of directors.
For the last 15 years, Sherri has generously supported Whale Trust through direct contributions, donations of her artwork, donor referrals, and placement in her bestselling annual calendar. But nothing stands out as much as her contributions to Whale Tales that started with her volunteering to teach children to craft whale tails as part of our keiki education programs, and her now iconic role in donating the art for our annual Whale Tales t-shirts.
Sherri grew up on Oahu and has called Maui home since 1989. Her collection, inspired by the colors and scenes of Hawaii, spans more than 25 years, and can be found in private art collections around the world — both as gallery art pieces and in her iconic apparel line.
Please join us in supporting Sherri Reeve Gallery and Gifts by shopping online during this time when her doors have to be closed.
Mahalo for the color and creativity you paint into our lives and for your generous community support, Sherri!
