Noll influence extended to Guild for the Blind
Shortly after Chuck Noll retired as Steelers coach, former Pittsburgh Catholic Diocese Bishop Donald Wuerl recruited him to join the board of directors for the former Greater Pittsburgh Guild for the Blind. Noll served as the board chair from 1997 through 2004 and was an emeritus board member.
“He has been absolutely imperative to the success of our agency,” said Erika M. Arbogast, president of what is now the Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh.
She said the organization started the Chuck Noll Society, which recruits donors to pledge at least $1,000 annually over five years. An annual golf outing for Steelers alumni brings in between $90,000 and $100,000.
“In this Steeler town, having him involved in the organization and being a supporter was huge for us,” Arbogast said.
