colon or semi colon?


should I use a colon or semi colon after the "such as" in this sentence or leave it alone??

See example:

If you cannot afford give monetarily, necessities such as dog and cat food, kitty litter, brooms, bleach, or toys are always a welcome sight.

You don't need any punctuation after "such as." I'd recommend changing "or" to "and," though, since all of them are welcome sites (donators don't need to choose just one of them).
