This is the story of LIVES TRANSFORMED BY THE POWER OF WORK! Goodwill Industries was founded in Boston Massachusetts by Methodist minister and social innovator Edgar J Helms. In 1935 Oklahoma City publisher E.K. Gaylord heard about the success of Goodwill in other parts of the country and decided to help bring it to central Oklahoma. Eighty-five years later Goodwill is going and growing strong. This book contains the stories of lives transformed through the power of work as well as the ups and downs of a nonprofit agency started during the Great Depression. Numerous vintage photos and inspiring stories. This makes a wonderful coffee table book and a great gift for someone needing information or inspiration from the Goodwill story.
