On November 7, 2019, Sheldon Jones and Christian Churches United will release Joy To The Burg: The Gift of Music to Help the Homeless. Joy To The Burg is a Christmas album featuring 14 Harrisburg area musical acts.
The album was envisioned by philanthropist and musician Sheldon Jones of the band Loco Lobo as a way to help the homeless. 100% of album sales and concert ticket sales proceeds will go to support the homelessness programs of CCU: HELP Ministries and Susquehanna Harbor Safe Haven. All production costs and album/concert expenses are being covered by a number of generous sponsors and donors.
