WEST RIDGE — Community organizations will hold a resource fair and back-to-school Q&A session Tuesday at Northtown Library.

The event will take place 6-7:45 p.m. Tuesday at the library at 6800 N. Western Ave. Participating groups will have volunteers on hand to answer questions about remote learning, child care resources and coronavirus-related aid.

School supplies will be handed out at the event, according to organizers.

There will also be information available regarding eviction and tenants rights, as well as support in filling out the 2020 Census, registering to vote and getting mental health help.

“This is for anyone who is struggling to make ends meet and also for those concerned about immigration status,” West Ridge volunteer Deidra Anglin said in a statement.

The event is being organized by the 50th Ward Action Network, which is an umbrella group comprising several local organizations, including the West Ridge Community Response Team, the Indo-American Center and ICNA Relief.
