Closing the Gap: United Way’s Bill Noll Highlights the Challenges


No one needs to explain to Bill Noll, the new president of the United Way of Kent County, how the recession has impacted local charities. He’s seen first hand the stress these organizations are experiencing as they are asked to do more in fulfilling their various missions with increasingly less resources. Each of the twenty-three agency partners that United Way supports in Kent County has been hard hit by an economy that may take years to recover.

The challenge for Bill, former president of a GMAC division before retiring to the Eastern Shore a few years ago, was how the United Way could find a way to  close the funding gap for some of Kent County’s most important charitable work. The answer has been to raise the United Way fundraising goal this year.

The Chestertown Spy sat down with Bill Noll to understand more about the United Way’s mission and purpose as the Fall campaign drive starts to kick off.
