The Cold Spring Merchants Association is distributing collection boxes to local retailers to collect funds for John Arguello, owner of Cup-O-Ccino at 92 Main Street, as he battles colorectal cancer that has spread to his lymph nodes. The family also has established a fundraising site online, which so far has raised more than $10,000.
