The Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) at Northern Arizona University is hosting an online art auction to benefit the organization Opportunity, Community & Justice for Kids (OJC).

SOTA is a student organization that advocates for occupational therapy and strives to connect students with health care professionals, the community and students of other disciplines.

OJC is an alliance with business and faith communities to provide services, resources and caring adults to address the needs of growing children in society. Its mission is to equip foster and at-risk children and youth by providing tools, resources and positive role models to succeed in life.

The auction features artwork created by kids in the OJC program as well as donations by family, friends, students and community members. Other donations include jewelry, photography, paintings, prints and work in other mediums. A portion of the auction will directly benefit kids in OJC and the rest will support SOTA members by providing them opportunities to learn professional skills. Bidding ends at 8 p.m. on March 13.

All auction items can be found on the NAU SOTA Auction Benefiting OCJ Kids webpage. To make a direct donation, visit the NAU SOTA donation page and then follow SOTA on Instagram and Facebook for its latest updates.
