Florida KidCare is the state's Children Health Insurance Program (CHIP), that provides health care coverage to children in families with incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level.

Those who attend will also get free vision screenings.

Children will even get some school supplies like books and bookbags to help them get ready for school.

The event is being held at North Miami Senior High School located at 13110 NE 8 Ave.

It starts at 10 a.m. and lasts until 2:00 p.m.
