ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The AMC hit television series "Breaking Bad," a show on the methamphetamine wars in Albuquerque, is helping the homeless.
New Mexico's largest emergency shelter announced Monday that the show recently donated boxes of clothing used in past "Breaking Bad" shows by the cast.
Joy Junction CEO Jeremy Reynalds say the clothing will be sold at the shelter's thrift store beginning Wednesday, and proceeds will go toward the Albuquerque-based shelter.
Reynalds says donated clothing also will give "Breaking Bad" fans an opportunity to purchase pieces of show memorabilia.
"Breaking Bad" follows Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.
The series is shot in Albuquerque.
Joy Junction currently is raising money for a new chapel and dormitory.
