D/FW's Holiday Helpers Celebrate First Thanksgiving Travel Season in Terminal D

DFW's nationally recognized Holiday Helpers program debuted in International Terminal D, heralding the first major holiday season celebrated in the Airport's 2-mil. sq.-foot facility.

Holiday Helpers -- Holiday Treats

DFW's Holiday Helpers program, born in the stressful travel period post 9/11, continues a four-year tradition of assisting passengers and distributing goodies to families and travelers. Airport employees leave their desks for the day to distribute coloring books, toys, popcorn, cotton candy and travel gear along with smiles and good cheer. Other goodies available to passengers include the following:

* Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will be distributing 100 dozen of their famous signature doughnuts throughout the terminals on Wednesday morning, courtesy of Krispy Kreme's Grapevine location * T-Mobile is offering free day passes for Internet access * Pepsi will be sampling its new MDX product -- which should energize passengers for the day! * Haagen-Dazs is offering a $1.00 discount coupon on its new shake called "The Dazzler" in Terminals C and E * Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream is offering a $1.00 discount coupon on its "Meltdown" shake in Terminal D * Harlon's Bar-B-Que and Dickey's Barbecue will offer 15% discount coupons and a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas -- all 5 terminals Greetings For Soldiers * Holiday Helpers will staff tables in Terminals D and B (near the USO) for passengers to write special holiday postcards to troops returning to Iraq and Afghanistan from DFW. The cards will be distributed on departing military charters and the program will continue throughout the holiday season. Art in International Terminal D: Contests and Autographs * A creative passenger can win tickets on Mexicana Airlines and dinner at the Grand Hyatt by participating in a naming contest for the art piece by David Driskall and Jerome Meadows Piece in the center of International Terminal D near the entrance to the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The contest runs through December 15 -- the artists will announce their decision in January. Ballots are available at the new Airport Ambassadors' information center near the artwork. * Artists who participated in International Terminal D's art program will be on hand throughout the day to sign complimentary photo cards of their art and discuss their work. Artists scheduled to appear include Anitra Blayton and John Holt Smith of Fort Worth, along with Viola Delgado and Pamela Nelson of Dallas. Holiday Parking Deals
