Students participate in gift wrapping party for Derek Jeter's charity

High school students dressed in Christmas attire spread a little holiday cheer at Yankee Stadium this year.



Students participated in the program as part of 'Jeter's Leaders,' a group of students in the Turn 2 Foundation. 



They packed up over 1,000 backpacks full of Christmas gifts for younger kids who they help mentor. 



The backpacks will be distributed in Derek Jeter's hometown of Wisconson, in Tampa and in New York City.
