Blake Shelton recently spent some time fishing with foster children on his Oklahoma property.

According to a social media post from the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation (OWCF), the superstar invited several foster kids to join him on one of his Oklahoma farm ponds to teach the children how to fish and fillet their catches. They later enjoyed the fruits of their labor with a fish fry.

Shelton, an Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation board director, and other volunteers made the day possible in partnership with Fostering Outdoor Oklahoma Families, a program designed to introduce foster children and their families to the outdoors. After their day of fishing, the children got to keep the rods, reels and tackle, which were all donated by OWCF.

This isn’t the first time Blake Shelton has used his platform to help others. He recently gifted a 1st grade teacher in Texas with classroom supplies after she reached out to him on Twitter.

The “Happy Anywhere” singer is currently prepping for the upcoming season of NBC’s The Voice, where he is set to return alongside Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.
