"Breaking Bad" donates cast clothing to New Mexico shelter

The AMC hit television series "Breaking Bad," a show about the methamphetamine wars in Albuquerque, is helping the city's homeless -- and giving fans a chance to own some memorabilia.

New Mexico's largest emergency shelter said the show recently donated boxes of clothing worn by cast members from past episodes that will be sold at the shelter's thrift store beginning Wednesday. Proceeds will go toward the Albuquerque-based shelter, said Joy Junction CEO Jeremy Reynalds.

"Fans love the show, so it's just great that we can give some of them a lasting memory and while so doing help Joy Junction as well," Reynalds said.

The thrift store will be open seven days a week at the shelter but will not be selling clothing online. And it's not clear what the items for sale include.

"Breaking Bad" follows chemistry teacher 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 and is shooting its final season.

The show's final season will air on AMC beginning July 14.
