"My name is Jennifer Borgstrom and I have owned an online website in Gloucester County since 2012. I wanted to say, "Thank You" to Gloucester County. I have been very fortunate to use the business marketing and website grant several times over the years. As a small business owner, this has been huge for my business. The marketing grant has enabled me to grow my business and continue to make improvements on my website whereas without it I would not have been able to. It has been a blessing and I am very grateful. I would also like to mention that Sherry Spring has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She is so accommodating and helpful with any questions that I may have.
 
Thank you Gloucester County. This grant has truly been a gift for my business and has allowed me to take my business to levels that I couldn't have done without it."
