With a dream to end discrimination, a few business leaders and $5,000, Bill Sinkin had the courage of conviction to start Goodwill in San Antonio.

The idea was simple—collect used clothing, repair it and sell it.

This vision provided not only clothing at a price that was affordable to the city’s poor, but it also made work available for those most in need. From this humble start in 1945, Goodwill has continued its mission to help change lives through the power of work. Today, more than 52,000 people a year are assisted by Goodwill. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Bill Sinkin for his vision and the legacy that is Goodwill.
