London: Late pop legend Michael Jackson`s eldest son Prince Michael is following in his father`s charitable footsteps after helping to box up food packages for children in South America.

The 13-year-old paid a visit to a Los Angeles packing warehouse with his classmates at the Buckley School last week to offer their services to the Children`s Hunger Fund as volunteers.

The teenagers joined charity workers to put together more than 500 boxes of non-perishable goods to send to struggling youngsters in Peru, reports

The King of Pop dedicated his time and money to help various children`s charities during his lifetime, including donating cash to aid the victims of 2005`s Hurricane Katrina, helping to organise a benefit concert following America`s 9/11 terrorist atrocity, and setting up the Heal The World Foundation, which hands over funds to help various causes.
