The ordinary is a great organization that focuses on the heart of the community which is the children. The organization enhances that changes of young men and woman on being successful by providing/teaching necessary skill for young ones to succeed like life skill, money managment, health and nutrition while providing a safe and nurturing place for under privileged to come and recover school supplies in preparation for the upcoming school year. The organization’s impact will ripple through the generations of children they touch, which will have a positive lasting effect on the city of San Antonio.

The ordinary gives you the chance to touch people's lives. The time it takes to watch a single episode on Netflix, you could have created a 100 smiles and changed the life path of a young child. They maximize the time you give to have the most impact.

The Ordinary is dedicated in bringing ordinary people together to do and accomplish Extraordinary things in our community. Since 2010 we haven impacted over 3500 students through our back to school and backpack drive. We have severed our community with the help of 300+ Volunteers. We are excited to add another event to this year's calendar. We will be hosting a Halloween Festival at a homeless shelter. We are excited and are planning more event for 2017!

I first came across this organization when Delia saw a need at the bank she was working at. Years ago what started with just a few backpacks for some children in need has grown to near 1000! The Ordinary is the perfect example of what can be accomplished when we band in unison for a cause greater than ourselves.

Worked with The Ordinary on a backpack drive with the Alamo Beard Club. Couldn't have asked for better partners! We also helped them clean up their storage areas to store school supplies. Great people, family friendly, 10/10!

The Ordinary is truly dedicated to helping ordinary people do ExtraOrdinary things in our community. Ordinary people amaze me every day by showing that--when given the chance to help in whatever way they can--how they will step up to work together and create phenomenal good within our community! Since 2010, Ordinary people have come together to help The Ordinary provide backpacks filled with school supplies for over 4,000 under-resourced, at risk children as well as provide services and further assistance for thousands more families! They've also come together to form a community that is open to helping our in-need community members (most often children) in whatever way we can. We care, we come together and we hope to make an ExtraOrdinary difference together!
