The Tank

Located inside the Rocky Hill fallout shelter at the end of Kakela Place, the 7,000 square foot space called The Tank has facilitated the sorting and storage of items for Carnival’s White Elephant Sale for many years.
Fall 2020 Update: The Tank is closed for the foreseeable future, and unable to accept donations at this time.


Originally a water tank built by the City of Honolulu in 1913, The Tank transformed many times over the years, becoming a military storage site during WWII, an air raid shelter, a stand-by blood bank, and finally, a storage area for the school.
