Is there parking?

Free parking is available in the WTTW parking lot.


What is the minimum age for volunteering?

All participants must be at least 16 years of age. Organizations that have youth members must supply a chaperone and can volunteer during any shift time. Youth individuals may volunteer, but can do so only during the morning and/or afternoon shifts because of curfew laws.

If my organization is volunteering, how many people can we bring?

The WTTW11 Pledge Studio holds a maximum of 35 volunteers. Groups can range in size from 10-35. We ask group coordinators to guarantee a minimum of ten people per group.


Is there a dress code?

Business casual dress is preferred. Shirts with company or group logos are acceptable in any color but white (white clothing causes a glare on camera). Please do not wear anything bearing endorsement for a controversial issue or political candidate. For groups, company shirts are welcome but please avoid group hats. It can get chilly in the studio, so we recommend bringing a sweater or jacket.


If my organization is volunteering, will we be recognized?

Groups of ten or more will receive three on-air mentions during their Pledge shift. Your group name will be read verbally and your group name will appear on screen. Unfortunately we cannot display company/group banners on the set.
Will meals be served?

Weekend mornings:
Breakfast pastries and coffee are served.

Weekend afternoons:
Light food service and vending machines are available.

All evenings:
Catered food and vending machines are available.

Can we tour the studios?

WTTW will endeavor to have a tour guide available during all pledge shifts. Tours can be taken in between pledge breaks. If a pledge shift is extremely busy this feature is not always possible.

I'm most likely going to ride straight from downtown, anyone else doing the same that wants to meet up?
Comment by Christie on December 6, 2010 at 4:40pm
I will be there. Lowell told me I fill out the roster, I can still ask around if we would ideally like more than 15.
Comment by Aaron Bussey on December 6, 2010 at 12:18pm
I'm in - and I emailed Lowell too
Comment by Julie Hochstadter on December 6, 2010 at 12:05pm
We have had two cancellations (I'm one of them) and were two short of the goal of 15 people to start with, so if you have a friend, neighbor or significant other who you could bring along Tuesday let Lowell Know at: lowell.nelson at
