Steps to Heaven steps up to make free masks

Steps to Heaven began in Vermilion Parish in 2015 as a way to help families in crisis.
Volunteers with the non-profit organization sew and provide families with NICU day gowns, receiving blankets, crocheted caps as well as infant burial remembrances, such as a pocket blanket set, burial gown set, keepsake pillow and the Holy Land Stone angel.
As a worldwide crisis has now impacted so many, Steps to Heaven has adjusted its response.

Is curve flattening?

East Baton Rouge Parish is Louisiana's most populated parish. U.S. 2020 Census estimates rank EBR in 1st place with 440,000 residents.

Jefferson Parish is next and then Orleans.

But in nearly four weeks, EBR is still being tested 75% less than Orleans, though the ratios of tests-to-positive cases are about the same.
