Recently, the Wenatchee Only7Seconds crew visited the residents of Heritage Haven and delivered "Positive Pumpkins.”

Every November my only 7 seconds teammates and I spread the message of love, hope 8 connections through pumpkins! As we were placing pumpkins on doorsteps I was able to speak to several residents who were wondering what we were doing. I heard a lot of "Thank you so much for doing this, there are a lot of widows in our community who feel lonely." Sometimes I feel that older generations often feel forgotten or that they aren't of value anymore. I hope that they felt differently today and that receiving a 'positive pumpkin' brightened their day.' - Abbie Gundersen and Only7Seconds
