If you win the Powerball, you might want to think about donating to charity.

The Capital Area Salvation Army came up short in its Christmas fundraising goal.

The charity still needs to raise about $140,000 in the next few weeks to meet its fundraising goal of $960,000.

The Salvation Army says it's helping more families, and giving is down.

The organization says donations of any amount will help needy families in the Lansing community.

The deadline to raise the money is Friday, January 29.
