Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation spreads holiday cheer

Hundreds of kids across the country will have Christmas presents under their trees thanks to legendary Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter and his foundation. 



Student volunteers, who are members of Jeter's Leaders, a four-year program run by Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation, prepared the presents at Yankee Stadium on Thursday.



More than 1,100 backpacks full of Yankees merchandise were filled during the event. 



The presents will be shipped to kids in New York City, Michigan and Florida just in time for Christmas.
