Ava Witthauer of Shoreview has been in the habit of helping others since she was a little girl at Parkview Center School in Roseville -- from raising cash donations for victims of 2004’s deadly tsunami in southeast Asia, collecting thousands of Valentine’s Day cards for troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan, to helping start a food shelf at Roseville Area High School (RAHS).
“She was born this way,” her mother Kim says. “As far back as I can remember she has been looking for ways to help others.”
