08/02/2006 12:01 PM - LENEXA, Kan. – CommunityAmerica Credit Union, currently engaged in its 6th annual “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive, for underprivileged children, is partnering with the Kansas City T-Bones to aide the National Education Association-Kansas City, Kansas in an effort to raise donations for new teachers.

On August 3, 2006, when the T-Bones take on the Schaumburg (Ill.) Flyers, fans who bring in school supplies for the NEA-KCK’s “New Teacher Survival Store” will receive a free berm ticket for the T-Bones 2007 Season.
