We would like to welcome Lori to the Blessings family as our new Program Coordinator!
Lori McSherry-Swartz has a degree in Journalism from Michigan State University . She previously worked for Duke Energy from 2008-2019 in various positions, most recently as a root cause investigator in the Organizational Effectiveness department. Lori is also Prosci certified in Change Management.
She moved to Florida from the Chicago suburbs in 2007. She currently lives with her husband Jeff in the Pine Ridge area. Together they have six children: one in Orlando, one in New York City, one in Denver, two in Gainesville and one in St Petersburg.
She is excited about this opportunity with Citrus County Blessings and looks forward to making a difference for those in need in this County.
Founded in 1999, Citrus County Harvest, Inc. started a Food Recovery program called Harvest. Each day, local restaurants donate remaining food at the end of the day. Our volunteers transport the perishables immediately to food pantries and meal services serving those in need. Two other programs, Blessings and Feed the Kids, provide low-income children meals during weekends within the school year and during the summer when out of school. Learn More
