The two joined a company called Group 1001 and Habitat for Humanity to make it happen. As Clark and Jackson played basketball with children, volunteers built the structure of what will be a new home for the Krost family.

"Our trailer was falling apart so I applied and we went through an orientation process and I got assigned a budget coach, and from there we went off," said Dusten Krost.

Caitlin Clark also helped build a basketball hoop for the three kids who will live in the home.
