Two-day community service project for Turn 2 Foundation story image

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - High school students will participate in a two-day community service project under Derek Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation.

The first project will be creating a community green space at St. Augustine Cathedral School under the guidance of Volunteer Kalamazoo.

It's all part of the week-long 2014 "Jeter's Leaders Social Change Project."

When the students finish their work, they will present the school with more than 150 books donated by Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing and Jeter Publishing for its library.

The Turn 2 Foundation is also expected to make a big announcement to help improve the community further. That is expected Tuesday afternoon.

We will keep you updated on that announcement.
