Doylestown, PA – May 14, 2020 – Sagefrog Marketing Group (Sagefrog), a top ranked B2B marketing agency with specialties in healthcare, technology, industrial, and business services, is supporting local merchants in the Doylestown borough by providing cash advances with an initiative coined, Dollars for Doylestown.
The local marketing agency, which has two office locations in Doylestown borough, is a small business supporting other small businesses in town as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to impact the livelihood of companies and their employees. Sagefrog has purchased $500 e-gift cards, serving as cash advances, from local eateries and merchants including Empanada Mama, Nourish, and Native Café.
“Helping businesses that Sagefrog has supported over the years’ is a small gesture that we hope will help these businesses sustain traction, and will inspire others to do the same,” said CEO and Co-founder of Sagefrog, Mark Schmukler. “This pandemic is an opportunity for people and companies to step up however they can with empathy and urgency to support their community…even small gestures in times like these make a difference.”
How Other Businesses Can Get Involved
Sagefrog has coined the initiative, Dollars for Doylestown, with hopes that the concept of local small businesses supporting each other will catch on, and as a result, the borough can sustain through the nationwide shutdown.
