Former United States Army Sgt. Amy Jo McDonald is planning to purchase new home for her family

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 3, 2019 -- Realtor.com® and Veterans United Home Loans today announced that former United States Army Sgt. Amy Jo McDonald of Pella, Iowa, has won the Veterans United Home Loans and realtor.com® New Home for the Holidays $200K Veteran Homebuyer Giveaway.

"Sgt. Amy McDonald and her husband, Scott, have both given so much in their service to our country," said Kris Farmer, chief marketing officer at Veterans United. "At Veterans United, we strive each and every day to help Veterans and service members achieve the American dream of homeownership. We are incredibly excited to partner with realtor.com® in making the McDonald's dream home become a reality for this deserving military family."

Originally from Brocton, N.Y., McDonald was stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., from 1998 to 2002, serving in the U.S. Army as a petroleum laboratory specialist. McDonald's husband, Scott, is also a Veteran of the U.S. Army and Marine Corps. McDonald and her husband have two children, and she will use the giveaway's $200,000 prize (less tax withholding) toward purchasing their new home.

"We are sincerely grateful for the gift that Veterans United has given to our family in collaboration with realtor.com®, and we appreciate the recognition you have given to Veterans," said Amy Jo McDonald. "Winning this sweepstakes means a lot to our family. It will lift the burden of having a monthly mortgage payment and will allow us to be more financially prepared for our children's future. We couldn't be more grateful for that opportunity."
