KINGSTON — Area residents, including some from Greater Pittston, enjoyed a Dairy Queen Blizzard on Thursday while helping Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

National Miracle Treat Day, a partnership between the Children’s Miracle Network and Dairy Queen, meant that for every Blizzard sold at least $1 would be donated to network hospitals.

Dairy Queens across the country participated.
