Four local restaurants are teaming up to support a Greenville Avenue Pizza Company manager whose wife died unexpectedly on Christmas.

GAPCo manager David Stigall lost his wife, Ashley Stigall, a stay-at-home mom who care for the couple’s three children. All are under the age of 7.

The cause of death is not known.

On Wednesday, both locations of GAPCo will donate 50 percent of their sales to the Stigall family. Goodfriend Beer Garden, Goodfriend Package and One90 Smoked Meats will also donate a portion of their sales that day.

In addition, a GoFundMe has been started to help cover the family’s expenses. It has raised more than $65,000 as of Monday afternoon.

“David works tirelessly providing for his family, and with just one income and no life insurance benefits, supporting the family will be a challenge,” Stigall’s father, Perry Stigall, wrote on the page. “How does a single father continue working so many hours and balance his children‘s school requirements, the love they need and provide some semblance of a normal life for his children? David is distraught to say the least, trying to console his children, as well as wondering how to provide the stable home life the children will need going forward. The challenges seem insurmountable.”
