ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The AMC hit television series "Breaking Bad" about the methamphetamine wars in Albuquerque is helping the city's homeless.

New Mexico's largest emergency shelter says the show recently donated boxes of clothing worn by cast members in past episodes.
Joy Junction CEO Jeremy Reynalds says 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 buy 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.
